An 81-year-old woman named Xue Minxiu has received an undergraduate diploma in e-commerce from China's Tianjin University. The woman, who had enrolled in the distance education course four years ago, would get up at 5 am to study. She was offered a seat at a university in the 1950s but was not allowed to pursue her studies by her employer, according to reports.”I think the meaning of life is to continually challenge myself and improve myself, so I want to thank Tianjin University for giving me this precious opportunity to make the dreams that were not completed at an early age become a reality,” Xue told Xinhuanet.
”For me, the most important thing in life is to live my own way. That is, not to succumb to pressure from peers. With limited time, please remain true to our original aspirations and stay hungry, stay foolish. The most important thing is to have the courage to go on,” Xue added.
