Malala Yousafzai, who featured on the duvet of British Vogue‘s June edition, spilled the beans on her lockdown days, wearing a headscarf, her go-to dish, friendships, and much more, in the interview. Here’s what she mentioned:
The 23-year-old, who graduated through the pandemic moved to Birmingham to finish her ultimate 12 months at Oxford University from her guardian’s home. She spent her time enjoying on-line video games, consuming lamb curry cooked by her mom, studying and “doom-scrolling” on social media.
Her go-to meals order
The activist received a while on the college to play poker together with her mates and go to McDonald’s the place she ordered candy chilli hen wrap and a caramel frappe.
“I had never really been in the company of people my own age because I was recovering from the incident [the Taliban’s attempt on her life], and travelling around the world, publishing a book and doing a documentary, and so many things were happening. At university I finally got some time for myself,” she was quoted as saying.
Talking about how her mother and father wished to see their daughter married sooner or later, she added, “I still don’t understand why people have to get married. If you want to have a person in your life, why do you have to sign marriage papers, why can’t it just be a partnership?”
Love for comedies
Apart from documentaries on severe points like girls’s rights and women’ training, Malala mentioned she needs to make comedies as nicely, her favourites being Rick and Morty and Ted Lasso.
Talking concerning the launch of her new manufacturing firm ‘Extracurricular’, she added, “I want these shows to be entertaining and the sort of thing I would watch. If I don’t laugh at them or enjoy them, I won’t put them on-screen.”
On carrying a scarf
Malala mentioned that carrying a scarf meant extra to her than her Muslim religion. “It’s a cultural symbol for us Pashtuns, so it represents where I come from. And Muslim girls or Pashtun girls or Pakistani girls, when we follow our traditional dress, we’re considered to be oppressed, or voiceless, or living under patriarchy. I want to tell everyone that you can have your own voice within your culture, and you can have equality in your culture,” she expressed within the interview.
