Champion of girls' education Malala lives up to her billing: Scores top marks in her O-levels

Malala Yousafzai survived being shot by the Taliban in Pakistan while she was campaigning for women's education in October 2012.

She's catapulted to massive international fame since then. And now, according to her father Ziauddin's Twitter handle, Nobel prize winner Malala Yousafzai passed O-level exams with an astounding 6A*s and 4As grades on Friday. That's amazing even for the champion of girl's education.

Along with being the youngest recipient of the Nobel prize, she was also named one of Time magazine's most influential people in 2013, she won the European Parliament's Sakharov prize for Freedom of Thought and her autobiography "I Am Malala" was published in 2014.

Malala was only 11 years old when she penned an anonymous diary under the pseudonym Gul Makai — the name of a heroine from a Pashtun folk tale — that had a wide variety of readers all over the world.

Due to the gunshot wound to her head, she had a titanium plate fitted, as well as a cochlear implant in her skull to help her hear.

Despite travelling the world to further her cause and to raise awareness, for girl's education, Malala has always said that she is extremely dedicated to her  own schooling.

Malala has once again shown the world that if you want something hard enough then you have to fight for it. Kudos to her for her amazing achievement.
