MIAMI (WSPA) — A North Miami woman has become a United States citizen at the age of 103.
WSVN reports Andrea Joseph arrived in the U.S. more than 15 years ago.
Born in Haiti, Joseph was sworn in at a naturalization ceremony on Friday.
Joseph’s granddaughter told the news station that her grandmother, who celebrates her 104th birthday in August, was “overjoyed” to receive U.S. citizenship.
Joseph’s great-grandnephew McKenzie Fleurimond said in an interview with WSVN that the family was excited and inspired by her example.
“As a family, she’s a matriarch, so she’s definitely setting an example that no matter how old you are, you can still accomplish your goals, your dreams, your vision,” Fleurimond told the news station.
