Malala Needs Survival Tips For Her Last Year at the University
Malala Yousafzai, the youngest Nobel laureate in the world, is considered a symbol of resilience and inspiration for young girls all over the world. Born in Swat Pakistan, Malala Yousafzai has been speaking about the girls’ right to education. This was the time when Swat was undergoing its troubled times under the Taliban who were making daily life difficult for the common people. Malala Yousafzai’s radical ideas and thoughts did not sit well with them. At the age of fourteen, she was shot in the head along with her mates as she was going to school. She was flown to the UK where Malala started her new life with her family.
Now Malala is a young woman studying Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Lady Margret Hall, the University of Oxford. Recently, Malala Yousafzai posted an endearing picture sitting in the library with the caption,
‘Back at university for my last year and I know it will be the toughest one yet. What are your best survival tips? #Askingforafriend’

Twitter, like always, was all up for the free advice.
'When the study gets harder, avoid books and switch to friends.'
'Start projects earlier'
'Sleep! I chose sleep over all-nighters in uni, and I think I stayed more sane than my friends that didn't.'
'Cook in batches, don't be afraid to eat the same reheated meal for a few days in the library! Smoothies are a great way to keep getting nutrients into your diet while you're stressed'
'Knowing when its time to take a breath and take a walk. Pushing yourself to your breaking point isn't going to be helpful.'
The famous scientist Kevin Folta had some real useful advice. He suggested Malala to ‘start hot and taper’, make sure that her instructors knew her, and help others. Kevin Folta also suggested Malala to speed up in the beginning so that she has time left towards the end when the studies become more demanding.
Malala rose to fame with an anonymous blog that she wrote for BBC Urdu. After her recovery from the murder attempt, Malala decided not to slow down but to speed up her efforts for the right to education for all children in the world. She founded Malala Fund, a non-profit organization, and also co-authored her book I Am Malala. In 2014 Malala received the Nobel Peace Prize when she was just 17. Malala has many accomplishments in a very young age. She was the main subject of the Oscar-nominated documentary He Named Me Malala. In 2017, Malala became the youngest person to address the House of Commons of Canada.
