Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by the Taliban at age 15 on a school bus in front of all her classmates. They tried to murder her because she was a vocal, international advocate for girls’ education.
Not only did she survive, she went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize a year later. As if that wasn’t enough, she also just aced her final exams in her last year of high school with straight A’s! Her father (her most vocal supporter and all around adorable dad) shared the grades on Twitter.
She reportedly is considering attending Oxford.
