LONDON - Activist, author, tireless campaigner for girls education, student and survivor — that’s what *British Vogue* described Malala Yousafzai as when she posed for the cover of its July issue.

Malala is the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner in history but that’s not her only accomplishment, she has published a moving memoir, spent her 16th birthday addressing the UN, established her own namesake fund and is an activist who campaigns for safe education for girls across the world. She announced the exciting news on social media.

“I know the power that a young girl carries in her heart when she has a vision and a mission — and I hope that every girl who sees this cover will know that she can change the world,”Malala Yousafzai posted on Twitter.

According to Vogue, the video interview will be available to watch on their online platforms from Thursday. This isn’t the Nobel laureate’s first stint in the international media.

She has appeared on David Letterman’s Netflix special, had her documentary shortlisted for the Oscars, starred as a guest on the Friends reunion, ventured into production with Apple Inc, made it to Bazaar’s 150 visionary women list, and received an inspiring spot in Google’s #OneDayIWill video that celebrated strong women.

Yet, despite the fact that the modest, young activist has championed women’s rights and escaped her home after an attempted assassination, there is still a faction of people in Pakistan who bombard her with hate every time she achieves something.

Everything Malala accomplishes has somehow been attributed to her status as a “western puppet” rather than an accomplished young woman who is making us proud internationally. It seems to be difficult for people to see her courage to fight for what she believes in and accept the western accolades and acknowledgement she receives for it.

As her British Vogue announcement went viral, many flocked to Twitter to air their unwarranted (and unwanted) opinions about it and be dismissive of her accomplishments.

People were salty that she flew away to England... for recovery and an education?

The headscarf, she explained in the interview, is about more than her Muslim faith. “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.”
