Nobel Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai Joins Twitter

Nobel Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai Joins Twitter:- Nobel Prize Laureate and the Pakistani campaigner who survived being shot in the head by Taliban gunmen, Malala Yousafzai, has joined Twitter, reported the media.

The 19-year-old sent her first tweets using the Twitter handle @Malala, on Friday. It is the same day she finished school, which she said was a “bittersweet” moment.

“Today is my last day of school and my first day on Twitter,” her first tweet read.

She said her thoughts turned to the millions of girls who would never get the same opportunity. Malala also revealed she would be spending the summer campaigning around the world, as well as calling for people to back her fight for girls’ education.

When she first began writing a blog on girls’ education, Malala was just 11 years old. Her fight made global headlines, after she was attacked, as she boarded her school bus in October 2012, when she was 15 years old.

To undergo urgent treatment to save her life, Malala was flown to the UK. Since when she recovered, she has been attending school in the UK. She had received a conditional offer to study at a top UK university, earlier this year, says reports.
