University graduation is one of the biggest occasions of one’s life, many usually celebrate the feat in grand style. However, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai has said she will celebrate her graduation from Oxford University by watching Netflix, reading books and taking some well-earned rest.
The education campaigner expressed her “joy and gratitude” after completing her philosophy, politics and economics degree and posted a photo online of loved ones gathered around a “happy graduation” cake.
Ms Yousafzai had become the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2014 following her campaigns for girls to be educated in her native Pakistan.
The 22-year-old shared two pictures of herself covered in confetti on Twitter with the caption: “Hard to express my joy and gratitude right now as I completed my Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree at Oxford.
“I don’t know what’s ahead. For now, it will be Netflix, reading and sleep.”
Thousands felicitated with Ms Yousafzai following her Twitter post, including Nasa astronaut Anne McClain – who studied in England – also replied, writing: “Congratulations on your graduation @Malala!
“For so many, higher education is the start of great things. For you, great things preceded it and I can only imagine the even greater ones to follow. The world is lucky to have you on it.”
