Malala Yousafzai, an activist, the youngest Nobel Laureate and the most famous graduate of Oxford University last year revealed a completely new side without advocating for girls’ education and women’s equality, when she became the protagonist of British Vogue’s July 2021 program.
The editor of British Vogue at Chief Edward Enninful took his social media conversations to share this wonderful story and amazing drawings of Malala in beautiful red, white and blue. Sharing the cover, Edward wrote saying that when it comes to the people I love, Malala Yousafzai is at the top. In 23 years, a world-renowned university graduate is already living so many lives. Activist, author, tireless campaign for girls’ education, daughter, sister, student It’s hard to believe it was just ten years ago that he was a young man with a love for reading, living in the Swat Valley controlled by the Taliban in Pakistan, blogging about his BBC experience and giving the Word to girls denied the right to education. Attempting to kill his life in 2012 – or what he called “incident” “- brought him to Britain for surgery. But he did not stop there.
In an interview with the magazine, Malala – who graduated with a degree in philosophy, politics and economics from Oxford University last year – shared that she enjoyed ‘every minute’ at the Oxford University including the visiting McDonald’s and also playing poker. Speaking about his time at university, she told that she was excited about anything real. Going to McDonald’s or playing poker with my friends or going to a talk or event. She was happy every minute because she hadn’t seen that much before.
She said that she was never among her peers because she was recovering from this incident, traveling the world, publishing a book and doing a documentary, and a lot of things happened. At university she finally got the time.
Yousafzai said his fame affected his studies at Birmingham, where he studied after leaving Pakistan. He shared, “People ask me things like,” What was it like when you met Emma Watson, or Angelina Jolie or Obama? ‘And I didn’t know what to say. It’s weird, because you want to leave that Malala out of the school building, you just want to be a student and a friend. “
Yousafzai, who was photographed on a British Vogue cover and inside wearing handkerchiefs, shared the importance of the hijab tradition to her as a Pastun girl, who shared very little about being a Muslim. She then said that It is a cultural symbol for us Pastuns, so it represents where she come from. And Muslim girls or the Pashtun girls or the Pakistani girls, when they follow our traditional dress, are considered oppressed, or voiceless, or living under patriarchy. She said she wanted to tell everyone that you can be and your word according to your tradition, and according to your tradition.
Malala also shared the Vogue cover on her Instagram and also on the Twitter feeds and shared, She said that she is so happy and humbled to be on the cover of British Vogue! Edward Enninful for creating a diverse space and wrote, “Thank you Edward Enninful for establishing British Vogue where we can all be.”
