Priyanka Chopra sends birthday wishes to ‘beautiful soul’ Malala Yousafzai
Nobel laureate and peace activist Malala Yousafzai celebrated her 23rd birthday on July 12, 2020. The birthday girl, who has currently finished her studies at Oxford University, celebrated the special with her friends and family. She also received wishes from people across all spheres of life.
Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas also penned a note for the birthday girl on her Instagram stories. Sharing a lovely picture of Malala, Priyanka wrote, “Happy Birthday to such a beautiful soul. Wishing you a year filled with so much love and happiness, Malala!”, reported News18.
Malala has also shared the glimpses of her special day on social media. “Chapter 23! Ready for a quarter-life crisis… Thank you so much to everyone for all the good wishes (sic),” she wrote.
Climate conservation activist Greta Thunberg also sent her greeting, while Priyanka commented, “Happy Birthday, Darling.”
Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistan-born activist, came to light after strongly fighting against Taliban for the education rights of girls. To ensure that the fight goes on, she makes sure to spend her birthday with girls who are fighting for their education. To support the cause, she has also set up Malala Fund.
Taking to Twitter, the official handle of Malala Fund shared, “Even as #COVID19 keeps us at home, @malala's work continues. Nearly 130 million girls were out of school before the pandemic — and now research estimates 20 million more will be out of school because of it (sic).”
We are grateful for supporters like you who make us optimistic for the work ahead.— Malala Fund (@MalalaFund) July 12, 2020
The best gift you can give @Malala is to support her dream of seeing all girls in school.https://t.co/KK2kJId0sQ pic.twitter.com/BWxljfBfBF
