Malala attends her first lecture at Oxford

On October 9, 2012, 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai was almost killed by a Taliban gunman who was angry with her efforts to promote schooling among girls in her native Pakistan. "Today, I attend my first lectures at Oxford", Malala wrote on her Twitter account, which she joined in July after finishing school.

The 20-year-old is studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) at Oxford University.

On her twitter account, Malala posted a picture of three philosophy books which received over 300,000 likes and over 100,000 retweets within hours, the caption read: "Five years ago, I was shot in an attempt to stop me from speaking out for girls' education".

In 2009, Ms. Yousafzai began her career in activism writing for the BBC where she chronicled the plight of young women living under Taliban rule in Pakistan.

Yousufzai rose to prominence when she was shot on the head and neck by the Taliban in Pakistan, while on her way home from school in 2012.

We're wishing her the best on her journey through Oxford as well. It's a hugely triumphant moment for someone who has been fighting for women's education rights for so damn long. And then I have two brothers, who are a bit cheeky as well, and they annoy me, they don't care about me most of the time, and that's what normal brothers are, so I'm grateful to have them sometimes.
