Malala attends first lectures at Oxford

"Today, I attend my first lectures at Oxford", Malala wrote on her Twitter account, which she joined in July after finishing school.

"Malala Yousafzai, who in 2012 was shot in the head by the Pakistani Taliban after campaigning for girls" rights to education, attended her first lecture at the University of Oxford on Monday.

The 20-year-old Nobel Prize for Peace victor tweeted a photo of her laptop, textbooks and a pencil on Monday, October 9.

Five years ago, Malala Yousafzai was on her way to school in Pakistan when the Taliban shot her in the head in an attempt to murder her for the sole fact that she believed women were entitled to the same education as men.

Her brother, Khushal Yousafzai, replied to her tweet saying, "Sorry for being a headache for the last five years".

People from all around the world were blissful and her picture was shared more 10,000 times wishing good luck by her admirers. "Ik (I know) you miss me but I am coming to oxford in two years".

Her career as an activist began in early 2009, when she started writing a blog for the BBC about her life under Taliban occupation and promoting education for girls in Pakistan's Swat Valley.

But her campaign angered local militants and she was shot during an assassination attempt while taking the bus to school.

She remained successful to become an internationally known symbol and an advocate for the fight to improve girls literacy around the world.
