Wow!! 91-Year-Old Grandma Becomes Oldest University Thailand's Graduate



A 91-year-old woman became the oldest person to graduate from university in Thailand on Wednesday, receiving her bachelor's degree from King Maha Vajiralongkorn.

Escorted by her family, Kimlun Jinakul travelled more than 700 kilometers from the northern province of Phayao to Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University, near Bangkok, to receive her bachelor's degree in human ecology.

"It has always been my dream to continue my studies," Kimlun told local TV station Thai PBS, adding that she had finished junior high school but couldn't continue her education at the time because her family couldn't finance it.

"When I was young, I actually received good grades," she said. "I have always enjoyed reading. I even bought manuals to educate myself so I could help my children with their homework."
