Malala Yousafzai-Youngest Nobel Prize winner for her Human Rights Campaigner has expressed her “joy and gratitude” after finishing her final exams at Oxford University.

The 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner, now 22, posted images on Twitter of her celebration early on Friday upon completing a degree in philosophy, politics and economics.

By tweeter she expressed
“Hard to express my joy and gratitude right now as I completed my Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree at Oxford. I don’t know what’s ahead. For now, it will be Netflix, reading and sleep.”

In 2014, she became the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize, at the age of 17. Three years later she accepted a place to study at Lady Margaret Hall at Oxford. Afterwards her family moved to the U.K. and following her recovery she continued to fight for girls’ right to education. 

Malala Yousafzai tweeted two pictures as she announced the news that she completed her degree. In one, she is celebrating with her family in front of a graduation cake.

The other was taken after a “trashing”, a tradition at the university where students are covered with food and confetti after completing their exams.

Yousafzai and her father started the Malala Fund back in 2013 to help ensure girls get 12 years of “free, safe (and) quality education.”

Tech giant Apple announced a partnership with the fund in 2018, expanding its financing to India and Latin America and offering secondary education for 100,000 girls.
