Malala Yousafzai Begins Classes at Oxford on the Anniversary of her Attempted Assasination

And she still campaigns for education rights, only this time she has a Nobel peace prize to her name.

Yousafzai later went on to pen an global award-winning book, I Am Malala, set up The Malala Fund, and became the youngest ever Nobel Prize Laureate-having received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.

The Nobel laureate got admission at Oxford in August this year to study philosophy, politics and economics after she was interviewed for admission earlier in the year.

Today she begins the pursuit of her next prestigious title: Oxford University graduate.

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". So grateful you are still with us.

Another tweeted: "Congratulations Malala". The world looks forward to seeing what you will accomplish next.

After recovering from her near-fatal injuries, Malala and her family relocated to Birmingham, UK.

What the terrorists surely didn't expect was that their cowardly attempt to silence her, would take a relatively unknown 15-year-old and catapult her and her cause to the world stage.

And in 2017, Malala's determination made her the youngest ever UN Messenger of Peace.
