From the HuffPost:

Five years ago, a member of the Taliban shot Malala Yousafzai in the head for speaking up for girls’ rights to an education. The Pakistani teenager miraculously survived and has since given her all as an advocate for girls’ right to an education.

On Monday, the anniversary of the shooting, Malala attended her first class at the University of Oxford.

Strength

 

“5 years ago, I was shot in an attempt to stop me from speaking out for girls’ education,” Yousafzai tweeted. “Today, I attend my first lectures at Oxford.”

At age 16, Yousafzai became the youngest person ever to win a Nobel Prize. She also frequently blogged about life in Pakistan under Taliban rule.
“I don't want revenge on the Taliban, I want education for sons and daughters of the Taliban.”
