Alala Yousafzai graduated from Oxford University in a restaurant in central London.
The 24-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner on Monday completed her philosophy, politics and economics degree with a meal at the Indian restaurant Col Saab in Holborn.
The education worker was joined by her husband Asar Malik, 24, whom she married earlier this month in a ceremony in Birmingham and was close friends.
Col Saab’s owner Roop Pratap Choudhary said: “It was a surprising moment and a great honor for us to host Malala and Aser’s graduation dinner at Col Saab. Keep his legacy alive.”
She posed for a photo with the restaurant staff and signed a copy of the menu. She said: “Thanks for the wonderful meal.”
The restaurant opened earlier this month and boasts of an array of authentic Indian cuisine with a twist.
Ms Yousafzai was shot in the head by the Taliban in October 2012 for criticizing the group’s efforts to stop Pakistani girls from going to school.
She survived the attack and was transferred to the UK for medical treatment, eventually settling with her family in Birmingham.
There she continued her education and became an advocate for girls’ education through the Malala Fund, an organization she founded.
In December 2014, she became the youngest Nobel laureate to be recognized for her work.
In 2018, he began studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of Oxford.
She graduated last year, but the graduation had to be postponed due to the pandemic.
