Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai has shared her “joy and gratitude” as she finishes her degree at the U.K.’s University of Oxford.

Malala tweeted on Friday that she had completed her philosophy, politics and economics three-year degree at the prestigious British college. She said: “I don’t know what’s ahead. For now, it will be Netflix, reading and sleep.” 

Malala who is 22, became the youngest person to receive a Nobel peace prize in 2014 at just 17-years-old, for her campaigning for girls’ education rights in Pakistan. She was shot by the Taliban in 2012 on the bus home from school, in an attempted assassination. Afterwards her family moved to the U.K. and following her recovery she continued to fight for girls’ right to education. Malala and her father started the Malala Fund back in 2013 to help ensure girls get 12 years of “free, safe (and) quality education.”

She has now graduated from one of the most prestigious Universities in the UK, Oxford University.
