And today, as students around the United Kingdom waited with baited breath to receive their A-level results, Malala Yousafzai confirmed she is set for Oxford University in September.
While Malala did not disclose the institution, it was known that she had applied to Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, where Pakistan's first female Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto, also studied.
In 2012, a Taliban gunman shot her in the head for her support of education for girls in her native Pakistan. Well done to all A-level students - the hardest year.
Caution must be used when looking at Monday's solar eclipse

After the results were announced today in the UK, Malala confirmed she was set to go to Oxford. "Your place at Oxford University 033 for Philosophy, Politics and Economics L0V0 has been confirmed".
She had received a conditional offer from the prestigious university earlier this year.
She's gone from surviving an attempted assassination by the Taliban to becoming the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate.
