If in case you have not come across Malvika Iyer's inspiring story yet, we'll give you a brief reintroduction.

The 28 year old social worker, motivational speaker and aspiring cook, who lost both of her hands in a bomb blast back in 2002, recently received praise and adoration from chef and entrepreneur Vikas Khanna for her achievement as a cook.

Iyer, yet again added another feather to her crown, as she shared on her social media handle, her achievement of earning a Ph.D degree.

Sharing an image of herself on Facebook along with her new doctorate degree, Iyer wrote:

"Say hello to Dr. Malvika Iyer. PS: To everyone who’s been curious as to how I type, do you see that bone protruding from my right hand? That’s my one and only extraordinary finger. I even typed my Ph.D. thesis with it."

Iyer's post has received over 7,500 'likes' 3,400 'shares' at the time of writing this, with everyone congratulating her on the new feat.

Iyer, has constantly been a source of inspiration for many - not just as a motivational-speaker and a disability-rights activist, but also due to her several outstanding accomplishments since the 2002 incident, which include securing a state rank in her secondary examinations and getting to meet India's former president, the late Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam.

Congratulations Malvika (read Dr. Malvika). Continue to shine bright as you always have!
