Yousafzai survived being shot in the head by a Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) gunman in 2012 after she was targeted for her campaign against its efforts to deny girls education.
She moved to England after she was shot, where she received medical treatment and last year graduated from Oxford University with a Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree. In June, last year, Yousafzai attended a virtual graduation ceremony of the class 2020 and shared it with her fans on social media.
