Age is just a number for María Dolores Ballesteros, who received her law degree from the University of the Valley of Mexico (UVM) at 80 years old.
This is the second degree for the recent graduate, who also obtained a degree in nursing at the National Autonomous University of Mexico over six decades ago when she was just 18-years-old. She took her studies into the field and practiced nursing at multiple hospitals in Mexico, the United States, and Canada.
And she’s not stopping there. Ballesteros, who had a father that placed a strong emphasis on education while she was growing up, just wants to keep studying. “This achievement satisfies me, but I am not fulfilled. I feel there’s still more for me,” she told the newspaper El Universal.
“I would like to do thousands of things in my life, but I will only achieve two or three more,” she said.
The mother of four also started her own nursing school in her hometown of Mexico City, and it currently has more than 500 students. It was at her school that she was inspired by the students to study law.
Although Ballesteros admits she had a difficult time adapting to technology for her classes, she says it was a positive experience overall. “I’m happy coexisting with young people because they inject me with health, energy, and enthusiasm,” she shared. “It went marvelously because I was near the school and being older, the professors and my classmates treated me with a lot of kindness.”
Maria hopes to use her new degree to work with community leaders in Magdalena Contreras of Mexico City, where her school is currently located.

Lindsay Lohan has done a lot of growing since her hiatus from Hollywood, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t pine for the old days from time to time.
“Yeah, I miss it,” the actress, 30, admitted to E! News from Cannes’ star-studded amfAR Gala at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Thursday.
Reflecting on her hiatus from the spotlight, Lohan said, “I think there’s a lot of noise that we deal with, so I found a kind of peace in life working with children and helping other people that really interest me.”
She added, “I think it’s important for us to recognize that all of this stuff is fun, but you have to take time for you.”
Despite her successful career on the big screen throughout the early 2000s, Lohan has hasn’t fronted a mainstream movie since playing a dramatized version of the late Elizabeth Taylor in the 2012 Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick.
Following a string of personal and legal problems, Lohan logged hundreds of hours of community service stemming from her 2012 car crash in Santa Monica. Over the eight years she was under probation, Lohan posted photos of herself giving back in a variety of ways, like helping to build a large playhouse for kids and worked on gardening for a women’s shelter.
In recent years, Lohan made waves on the small screen at the center of the Oprah Winfrey Network’s 2014 docuseries Lindsay, which chronicled her life after a string of personal and professional struggles.
