AceShowbiz - Malala Yousafzai is celebrating her college graduation. The Nobel Peace Prize winner completed her study at the University of Oxford, earning herself a degree in philosophy, politics and economics. While her graduation was delayed due to COVID-19, it didn't make her less excited for the new milestone.
The 24-year-old took to her Instagram account on Friday, November 26, posting some pictures of her donning cap and gown from the big day. "Some Latin was said and apparently I have a degree," so Malala wrote in the caption.
One of the pictures saw ones of her smiling beside her friends. Another snap featured the 24-year-old posing with her new husband Asser Malik. One other saw her parents, Ziauddin Yousafzai and Toor Pekai Yousafzai, leaning in to kiss her on the cheek.
Asser also took to his page to give his wife a shout-out. "The place we first met felt a little more special on Malala's graduation day," he wrote on Twitter to celebrate her accomplishment.
Malala's degree ceremony was initially planned for May 2020 but was postponed due to COVID-19. Oxford only resumed graduation ceremonies in September and the Pakistani human rights activist attended the final one.
Her graduation ceremony arrived just weeks after she tied the knot with Asser in a small wedding ceremony at her Birmingham, England home. On November 9, she shared a series of snaps from the happy day on her Instagram account, writing in the caption, "Today marks a precious day in my life. Asser and I tied the knot to be partners for life. We celebrated a small nikkah ceremony at home in Birmingham with our families. Please send us your prayers." Concluding her message, she said, "We are excited to walk together for the journey ahead."
