The world’s youngest Noble Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai finishes her Oxford University exams. She took up politics, philosophy, and economics, the BBC reports.

Yousafzai achieves the antithesis of her life’s tragedy where she was shot at head neck and shoulder by the Taliban army for saying girls must be allowed to continue to study. She was attacked while returning from school.

The human rights campaigner, who was in standard seven when she wrote and anonymously published a diary with BBC Urdu, documenting life under the fretful Taliban regimen, was brutally shot by two young men while she was on her way back home from school. Her sin? She spoke for girl’s education.

However, Malala recovered the near-lethal injuries and her family later relocated to England’s Birmingham. Tweeting early on Friday about her exams, the human rights activist wrote:

“Hard to express my joy and gratitude right now as I completed my Philosophy, Politics, and Economics degree at Oxford. I don’t know what’s ahead. For now, it will be Netflix, reading, and sleep.”

The young lady shared two pictures of her celebration. In one she can be seen cutting a graduation cake with her family and the other picture of “trashing” which is a university norm in the UK to cover students with food and confetti after exams.

In 2014, Malala became the youngest person ever to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, which she shared with India’s Kailash Satyarthi – a child rights campaigner. “I’m really happy to be sharing this award with a person from India,” she said in a news conference.

In 2017, Yousafzai was enrolled in Lady Margaret Hall at Oxford from where she completes her course in Economics, Philosophy, and Politics.

Twitter showered her with congratulations
