Leaders like Microsoft’s founder Bill Gates and Canadian president Justin Trudeau congratulated her and sent their best wishes.
Your bravery and commitment to education – both yours & others – is inspiring. Congratulations on graduating high school @Malala!— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) July 7, 2017
The youngest Nobel Peace Laureate in the world, Malala posted a series of messages where she shares her feelings of last day at high school and also called on support for educating more girls worldwide
When she was boarding her school bus in October 2012, aged 15, Taliban attackers shot her. She was flown to the UK for urgent treatment. It took her months to recover. After recovery, she was attending school in the UK. She also started ‘MalalaFund’ to help girls across the globe in getting education.
Now that she is graduated she took her first step towards the world of social media, using the Twitter handle @Malala. We hope the presence of people like Malala will make social media, a better place!
