A woman from Argentina is winning hearts online for her decision to go back to school at the age of 99. Eusebia Leonor Cordal had to drop out of school at a young age, reports Telecinco. After the loss of her mother and other family problems, a young Eusebia had to give up her books. Now, years after she dropped out of school, Eusebia has decided to attend the Primary School for Adults of Laprida and continue her education.

Sputnik News reports that she made the decision to resume her education at the age of 98 - and hasn't missed a day of school since then. Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, one of her teachers, Patricia, picks her up and takes her to school.

"When you get older you lose a lot of your memory. I knew the schedules very well, but when I came here I had forgotten everything, including how to write and read," Eusebia was quoted as saying by Sputnik News.

She can now read and write again, and hopes to learn how to use computers.

Her inspirational story has touched many on the Internet, with netizens praising her as an example of strength and resilience.
