She will study the PPE pathway (philosophy, politics and economics), a course chosen by former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto — a post Malala has dreamt of running for. “In Pakistan, unfortunately, they haven’t really seen a trustworthy leader yet,” Malala had told Hindustan Times in an October 2015 interview.
Malala’s world changed on October 9, 2012, when the Taliban targeted and shot her for her advocacy of girls education in Pakistan. After undergoing critical surgery and rehabilitation in Birmingham, she said she got a “second life” devoted to education.
She was granted the Nobel Peace prize in 2014 aged 17, along with India’s Kailash Satyarthi for their championing of children’s rights.
