Malala Celebrates By Joining Twitter


Islamabad: Malala Yousafzai, the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize is a female-education and human rights activist, who rose to fame after a Taliban gunman shot her while she was returning home in a school bus.


Malala joined Twitter today saying it is her last day at school and first day on the micro-blogging platform. Her first tweet said, “Hi Twitter”.

She tweeted, “I know that millions of girls around the world are out of school and may never get the opportunity to complete their education. Next week, I will be back on my #GirlPowerTrip to meet girls in Middle East, Africa and Latin America.”

Saying each girl’s story is unique and girls’ voices are most powerful weapons in the fight for education and equality, Malala asked if we would join her in her fight for girls, both on and off Twitter.
