Nobel laureate and education activist Malala Yousafzai just graduated from the University of Oxford. She took to social media to share the good news.
“Hard to express my joy and gratitude right now as I completed my Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree at Oxford,” she said in a post on Instagram. The 22-year-old shared that she didn’t know what she was going to do next. “For now, it will be Netflix, reading and sleep,” she said.
Actor and producer Mindy Kaling congratulated Malala and said: “Enjoy you Netflix.”
“Congratulations fren,” said everyone’s favourite Insta account Swineryy. While Blackish star Yara Shahidi commented and said: “Incredible.” Celebrities such as Ali Sethi, Priyanka Chopra and many others also left encouraging comments on Malala’s photos.
Malala was born and brought up in the volatile Swat Valley and while taking the bus home from school, in October 2012, she, and two other girls, were shot by a Taliban gunman: she was hit in the head by a bullet, but survived and eventually recovered.
In 2014, Malala became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of her efforts for children’s rights.
