Oakland, California (WiredPRNews.com) – A California woman has earned her college degree at age 94. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Hazel Soares of San Leandro took part in a commencement ceremony with approximately 500 students Saturday at Mills College in Oakland.

Soares, an art history major, is quoted by the AP as stating of her inspirational milestone, “It’s taken me quite a long time because I’ve had a busy life… “I’m finally achieving it, and it makes me feel really good.”
