The lifestyle of Malala Yousafzai, who became a prominent figure after she was shot by Pakistani Taliban for advocating for girls’ education and also became the youngest ever Nobel prize winner, was revealed as she pursues her undergraduate studies at Oxford University in England.
She has played polo, enjoyed late-night takeaways, been elected to be in charge of college parties and has learnt how to dance to Beyoncé – with a friend saying she is ‘on the R&B vibe’.
Malala has even appeared in student YouTube videos. But her life as a normal student is restricted by two armed plain-clothed Metropolitan Police officers who guard her 24 hours a day, with one stationed in a room next to her in college.
