Since Malala has become one of the greatest advocates for woman's rights, she's taken the world by storm. She was even awarded the Nobel Peace prize back in 2014. With the titles she carries she is constantly setting an example, meaning she has to break a lot of firsts in order to influence others. Well, there's one first that this Canadian celeb realized she hadn't broken, Lilly Singh and Malala Yousafzai's first selfie made history on A Little Late with Lilly Singh last night. 

The Canadian "Superwoman" has had some insanely amazing guests on her new talk-show since its premiere in September. 

From people like Ashley Graham and John Legend, the late-night show is setting records and matching ratings with Ellen DeGeneres' first season. 

Her and guest Malala continued making history last night by taking the most iconic selfie. 

In between discussing the activist's goals for the next decade and Malala admitting to handing in essays and arriving to class late at Oxford, Singh realized she had never posted a photo on her Instagram. 

When Malala confessed it was because she never had the opportunity to take one with a friend, Singh was over the moon, “Are you saying if I come over there, we take a selfie that you would post and it would be the first selfie you post?”

The talk show host treated the moment with all the importance it had and was completely honoured to have the experience. 

Malala held onto her promise and posted it on her Instagram shortly after, "I’m on @latewithlilly tonight! Tune in to hear us talk about college life, @malalafund and rap lyrics. Plus I take my #firstinstaselfie with @Lilly and do a practice job interview."

Last night's episode also revealed that not only has Malala spent the last few years being a symbol of hope for young girls across the globe, but she's also a huge fan of Singh's work

She mentioned how proud she was of the interviewer for showcasing her Indian culture in a positive light and how inspirational she was. 

Next time you feel bad for going on a complete YouTube binge, remember that even Nobel Prize winners love YouTube.
