Malala Yousafzai Graduates From High School, Joins Twitter

Pakistani activist for female education and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai is so wise and well-spoken, it’s easy to forget just how young she is.

In fact, the 19-year-old graduated from high school just this week, but she’s not heading off on a senior beach trip. Instead, Yousafzai kicked off post-grad life by joining Twitter to share some reflections on what the milestone means to her — and planning a #GirlPowerTrip to continue her work.

“Graduating from secondary school (high school) is bittersweet for me,” wrote Yousafzai on Twitter. “I’m excited about my future, but I know that millions of girls around the world are out of school and may never get the opportunity to complete their education.”

She continued, “Next week, I will be back on my #GirlPowerTrip to meet girls in Middle East, Africa & Latin America. Each girl’s story is unique  —  and girls’ voices are our most powerful weapons in the fight for education and equality. On and off Twitter, I’m fighting for girls —  will you join me?​”
