    Renowned activist for women education Malala Yousafzai has successfully been accepted to Oxford University for undergraduate studies after acquiring her A-level result. The Nobel Prize laureate, who was shot in the head by Taliban for her ambitions a few years back, confirmed the tidings by tweeting out the message she received from her new university.

    The fearless activist will be studying Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, which her inspiration, former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, also studied.

    Malala, who was a vocal advocate of women’s right to education in her hometown of Swat, was injured after Taliban gunmen attempted to assassinate her in 2012.

    Today, the 19-year-old continues her struggle and activism for women’s rights and has become a symbol for women empowerment in Pakistan. She is also one of Pakistan’s only two Nobel Prize laureates and the youngest-ever person to be awarded a Nobel Prize.
