Picture of both young activist ladies has gone viral and many celebrities from all over the world appreciate their bond. Priyanka Chopra and Mindy Kaling left some lovely comments on the post.
Some people criticize the picture as well by calling it “Overrated”.
Both girls met to discuss their activism at Lady Margaret Hall, Yusufzai’s Oxford College. Thunberg also talked to some of the students about the climate crisis and protest.
She further addresses some more topics regarding science, voting, the limits of protest, divestment, real zero v net zero, and much more.

Malala and Greta got worldwide fame after standing up for major global issues like the climate crisis and women’s education.
Two years back, Greeta raises her voice for action on climate change. For this, she started missing lessons most Fridays to protest outside the Swedish parliament building, in what turned out to be the beginning of a huge environmental movement.
She inspires millions of students to join her for the protest and in that way she becomes the leading voice.
People all over the world start appreciating the hard work of this young girl that she was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2019 and 2020.
Malala got her true fame when she was shot in the head by a group of terrorists in 2012, after writing an anonymous diary about life under the extremists.
After her recovery, she and her family moved to Birmingham. In 2017, she accepted a place to study at Oxford.
In 2014, she became the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize, at the age of 17.
