I'm an eighty-year-old woman who enjoyed a long academic career in her youth. After my widowhood, I went on three humanitarian missions in Afghanistan. I learned Persian (Farsi) in Paris while I was 68 to 73 years old. Now I suffer from many diseases but I love studying more than anything else, and each morning I am happy to see my new lesson in my inbox. It's my "speed dating!"
