After the announcements of A Level results, many nervous youngsters got the grades they prayed for. One of them was our very own, Malala Yousafzai.
This UN messenger for peace was shot in the head by the Taliban for supporting the idea that girls of her region, Swat should be allowed to go to school. She was then flown to Britain for treatment, where she has been living since then. For her bravery and her efforts against the Taliban, she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize at the age of 17.
And now the 19-Year-old has been accepted to Oxford University
She will be studying Politics, Philosophy and Economics, a course studied by many politicians and world leaders including our very own Benazir Bhutto.
Sharing her excitement, the young woman tweeted:
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
