Yousafzai, who is 22, tweeted early on Friday morning to say she had finished her studies.”Hard to express my joy and gratitude right now as I completed my Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree at Oxford,” she wrote. “I don’t know what’s ahead. For now, it will be Netflix, reading and sleep.”She also shared two photographs — one of her cutting a cake in celebration with family and another of her covered in cake and confetti.
