Malala Yousafzai, 20, a women's rights activist has been accepted to the University of Oxford for philosophy, politics and economics.
Her passion and activism for women's rights became clear to the world when she was shot in Pakistan in 2012 after speaking out about the right of girls to attend school.
Since the incident Yousafzai has become a global advocate for female education. She continues to speak out about her goal to ensure all females have a right to education.
Therefore, it comes as no surprise that she has gained entry to such a prestigious institution after receiving her A-level results this morning.
According to her latest tweet, Yousafzai seems to be very excited about attending the University and furthering her education while continuing to wish the best for everyone else.
So excited to go to Oxford!! Well done to all A-level students - the hardest year. Best wishes for life ahead! pic.twitter.com/miIwK6fNSf— Malala (@Malala) August 17, 2017
