“Speaking of inspiration, Malala Yousafzai has written exclusively for Vogue about her first year at university. As she returns to Oxford this month, I could not be more proud to have this wonderful young woman – who became a global figurehead for educational rights six years ago when the Taliban attempted to kill her simply because she wanted to go to school – on our pages”, wrote Enninful.

The young girl, Malala Yousafzai, hailing from the northern valley of Swat in Pakistan became an international name after she survived a life-threatening attack from Taliban militants while she was returning from her school.

Malala Yousafzai emerged as a strong advocate of girls’ education at the time when her hometown was under the strict control of Taliban militant. The militants specifically targeted the girl’s education and terrorized people to thwart them from sending their girls to schools. They damaged the infrastructure and resultantly many girls school were ablaze in the valley.

Malala Yousafzai, undeterred, despite several life threats, continued to write blogs for the BBC international in which she raised her voice against the scourge of terrorism obstructing the female education in the valley.

Consequently, she was attacked on 9th October 2012. She, however, is continuing her mission and has become a figurehead of the girl’s education globally.
