Never too old!
Olive Bryanton graduated with her PhD at the tender age of 81.
I sat in awe as I listened to Olive share her life long learning journey and how she was determined to achieve her goal of her PhD at the age of 81. Olive is no different than many women out there, she raised a family, had a career. What is different about Olive is her passion for learning. Olive also loved to help others. The focus of her PhD was the independence of rural women in Prince Edward Island (her own community).
Olive is a wonderful example that you are NEVER to old to do what you want. She was determined, set her mind to it, enlisted the support and help of others and achieved success. I walked away from our chat thinking about all of the excuses I have used to not complete a project, they excuses are simply my own self doubt.
I hope that as you listen to Olive you will be as inpsired as I was! If you want to learn more you can check out the documentary of her story Never Too Old streaming on CBC Gem.
