Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai visited her hometown in Pakistan’s Swat Valley on Saturday for the first time since she was shot by a Taliban gunman as a teenager.

She also visited a local army cadet college as well as a tourist resort. Malala also met with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi during her visit to Pakistan.

Addressing a gathering at the PM House where she held a meeting with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi earlier today, Malala slightly broke down while talking about her return.

“I am very happy today,” she added.

Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani Nobel laureatet, arrived in Pakistan in Thursday wee hours, after more than 5 years, since she was shifted to abroad following failed assassination attempt on her by Taliban gunmen.

In October 2012, Yousafzai — then 15 years old — was shot in the head at point-blank range by Taliban gunmen as she was returning from her school in Swat valley.

She suffered bullet injuries and was admitted to the military hospital Peshawar but was later flown to London for further treatment.
