The world's youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner, a global advocate for girls' education, and the recipient of an outstanding GCSE result, Malala Yousafzai (18) is thinking about the university she would like to pursue her undergraduate degree from.

Oxford University as well as Stanford University, California, are her top two choices, however, it seems like she is steering more towards opting for Stanford, mainly due to the weather. Her father, Ziauddin Yousafzai stated, “They have 300 days of sun out of 365 days, which is a rare phenomenon in the UK. Three hundred days of sun makes a difference.”

She is currently studying for A-levels in History, Maths, Geography and Religious Studies.
