However, later that year, she ended up getting married. She has since clarified that she is not against marriage, but is worried about the institution, which often sees “women compromising more than men”.
In her interview for Vogue, Malala also opened up about her time at Oxford University, where she graduated in Philosophy, Politics and Economics in 2020, revealing that she enjoyed “every moment” there- down, including visiting McDonald’s and playing poker.

The Nobel laureate said: “I was excited about literally anything. Going to McDonald’s or playing poker with my friends or attending a conference or an event.
“I was enjoying every moment because I hadn’t seen much before.”
She said she had “never really been in the company of people my age because I was recovering from the incident and traveling around the world, publishing a book and doing a documentary, and so many things. were happening”.
“At university, I finally had time for myself.
Malala said her fame affected her schooling in Birmingham, where she was educated after leaving Pakistan.
Malala surprised her millions of supporters around the world by marrying in a small, emotional ceremony at her home in Birmingham last year, months after discussing her reservations about marriage in her interview with British Vogue
“People would ask me things like, ‘How was it when you met Emma Watson, or Angelina Jolie, or Obama? “, She said.
“And I don’t know what to say. It’s awkward, because you want to leave this Malala outside the school building, you just want to be a student and a friend.
Malala was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman aged 15 after campaigning for girls to be educated in her native Pakistan.
Miraculously, she survived and was rushed to Britain for medical treatment, and continued her extraordinary work. This culminated with her becoming the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, at just 17 years old.
Her passionate beliefs on women’s equality were shaped by her father and fellow women’s rights advocate, Mr Yousafazi, a former teacher who spoke out publicly against the Taliban and their attempts to shut down girls’ schools, before even though she is shot by them.
