At 96, Mexican woman goes to high school
    2018-04-23  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

GUADALUPE PALACIOS stands out in her high school class in Mexico, and it is not just because of her gray hair, her deeply creased skin or her 96 years.

Palacios, who is seeking to live out her dream of finishing high school by her 100th birthday, is also the most enthusiastic student in the classroom.

“I feel ready to give it my all. Today is a marvelous day,” she said Monday on her first day of high school in the southern state of Chiapas.

“Dona Lupita,” as she is affectionately known, was welcomed with applause from her fellow students at High School Number 2 in the city of Tuxtla Gutierrez, the state capital.

Palacios grew up in poverty in an indigenous village and spent her childhood helping her family farm corn and beans instead of going to school.

As an adult, she went to work selling chickens at market, married twice and had six children.

Along the way, she picked up arithmetic, but never learned to read and write.  (SD-Agencies)
