A 105-year-old woman has realized her dream of becoming a high school graduate.

Axar.az reports, Theresia Brandl put on her cap and gown Wednesday and received her diploma.

Friends and family also threw her a graduation party.

When she was younger, her family gave her an ultimatum – finish school or help her mother with the house and her siblings.

She chose to help her mother.

Her secret to longevity is one a lot of Pittsburghers can get on board with.

“Just living, watching ball games and football games,” she says.

Theresia currently lives in a personal care home in Oakdale.

The graduation was organized by Twilight Wish, which is a foundation that celebrates seniors and makes their dreams come true.
