The oldest person in the world right now is 117 years old. She is Jamaican Violet-Mosse Brown, recently dubbed the world’s oldest human, as at April 2017.
Violet-Mosse Brown — otherwise known as Aunt V — was born March 10, 1900, which is 67 years before Jamaica was founded.
Brown became the world’s oldest living person in 2017 after the death of 117-year-old Emma Morano. Guinness World Records officially confirmed Morano as the last living person to have been born in the 1800s.
On how to be the oldest person in the world, Violet-Mosse Brown says there is no secret formula to her long life.
“Really and truly, when people ask what me eat and drink to live so long, I say to them that I eat everything, except pork and chicken, and I don’t drink rum and them things.”
Violet-Mosse Brown’s husband died in 1997 and she took over his responsibilities and became a record-keeper for the local cemetery, a job she continued well after her 100th birthday.
At 117, Brown has witnessed a lot of history’s milestones. She remembers when the first cars and planes came to Jamaica, as well as the first electricity and piped water. She has lived through both world wars and the founding of her country. She’s also the last living subject of Queen Victoria.
Brown’s granddaughter, Lelieth Palmer, and great-granddaughter, Nicole Palmer Murray, founded the Violet Moss Foundation to help care for the elderly.
We wish Chidi’s great grandma long life and prosperity. winks
