Malala Yousafzai graduates from Oxford University

Malala Yousafzai, the education campaigner who was shot by the Taliban, has graduated from the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom with a philosophy, politics and economics degree, writes Alexa Phillips for Sky News.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner finished her course a year and a half ago, but the university had postponed her commencement ceremony due to the pandemic. She was photographed on campus next to her friends and new husband Asser Malik.

Yousafzai was aged 15 when she survived an attack from a Taliban gunman, who shot her in the head, neck and shoulder while she was on her way home from school in Pakistan. She was targeted after speaking up for the right of girls to be educated. The activist travelled to Birmingham for medical treatment, where she recovered and joined the all-girls Edgbaston High School. In 2014, she became the youngest person to ever win the Nobel Peace Prize and later went on to study at Oxford University.
