Malala Yousafzai joins Twitter now that she's a high school graduate
Five years ago, Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman for going to school.
Yesterday, Yousafzai finished high school in England. And now that school's out, the Nobel Peace Prize winner has joined Twitter!
She went on to call for support on micro-blogging website for educating more girls worldwide, sharing that the occasion was bittersweet, bringing excitement for the future along with the knowledge that millions of girls around the world would never get the chance to complete their educations.
As if graduating from high school wasn't reason enough to celebrate, Malala has been offered a place at the prestigious Oxford University for her undergraduate studies where she has chosen to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
Not surprisingly, she racked up over 450,000 followers in less than 24 hours and within hours, global leaders such as Canadian president Justin Trudeau and UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres extended a warm welcome to the 19-year-old.
