    She was flown to England for special medical treatment, which included having a metal plate insertion in her head and a cochlear implant.

    Now, she has started going to a girls a school in Birmingham, England.

    She said: "I think it is the happiest moment that I'm going back to school, this is what I dreamed, that all children should be able to go to school because it is their basic right. I am so proud to wear the uniform because it proves I am a student and that I am living my life and learning."

    The brave girl has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, and her father is now a global education consultant for the Pakistan consulate in Birmingham.

    Pakistan has announced that education will be a compulsory legal right for girls by the end of 2015.
