Student shot by Taliban is new Oxford debating club president - BBC News

This week I filmed and edited a really inspirational story for BBC South Today in Oxford.

I was working with Shabnam Mahmood from the BBC's Asian Network.

Ahmad Nawaz, an Oxford student survived a terrorist attack on his school in Peshawar in December 2014. He has now become president of the Oxford Union debating society.

Ahmad was seriously injured in the attack and his brother and 130 other children died.

In 2020 he earned a place at Oxford University to study Philosophy and Theology at Lady Margaret Hall.

We met him in Lady Margaret Hall and I lit him with two lights. He's a lovely guy and gave us a lot of his time.

You can read the full story on the BBC's website here.
