90-Year-Old Grandma Enrolls Into Primary School

A 90-year-old grandma,identified as Priscilla Sitienei, from Eldoret, Uasin Gishu county, in Kenya enrolled in a primary school in Kenya.

Priscilla chose to attend school simply because she had an eagerness to read the Bible and learn how to send an SMS on her phone, Tuko.co.ke states.

The relentless grandmother is enrolled at Vision preparatory and she is schoolmate with seven of her grandchildren.

Priscilla affectionately referred to as Gogo, which is the grandmother in Kalenjin, dedicated much of her life to raising her children and was a midwife for 65 years.

She grew up under colonial rule and did not get the opportunity to go to school, so she took to education at her old age in a bid to empower herself.

Priscilla never shies away from learning and shares classes with children young enough to be her great-grandchildren.

Her attitude is admirable and proves to many in our society that it's never too late to learn and accomplish your dreams, a teacher in her school said.
