Elizabeth Yamoah, a remarkable 57-year-old from Ghana, has summoned the guts to re-enroll in high school with the goal of realizing her lifelong dream of becoming a nurse.

According to accounts, Elizabeth Yamoah re-enrolled in Agona Odoben Presby JHS alongside her granddaughter, an achievement that inspired several young adults in Africa and beyond.

Nana Akua Asidedua shared her experience on social media and mentioned that many elderly individuals still aspire to return to school but are unable to do so due to family and financial constraints. She commended Elizabeth for serving as an example for them.

According to reports, Elizabeth took the Basic Education Certificate Test (BECE).

In another incident, Belinda Berry, a 62-year-old woman who graduated from Chicago State University alongside her 25-year-old granddaughter, set a new record.
