Activist Malala Yousafzai Accepted to Oxford University!

Malala Yousafzai, education activist and the youngest ever Nobel laureate, has gained admission to Oxford University!

The 20-year-old inspiration was targeted by the Taliban back in 2012 and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. Malala had been writing about life under Taliban rule in blogs for the BBC when she was shot.

Malala was treated for her injury in England and finished up her schooling in Birmingham, England. She has continued advocating for female education over the years, and won the Nobel Prize in 2014.
