Secretary of State Hillary Clinton praised the most senior member of the Peace Corps in the world on Tuesday, an 85-year-old Florida woman serving in Morocco, reports CNN.
Muriel Johnston was recognized for her efforts and proclaimed "one of the best" volunteers by Clinton during a meet-and-greet meeting of U.S. embassy officials and other Americans in Marrakech, Morocco.
"It's also a great reminder that in America in the 21st century, there are not only second acts, there's third acts and fourth acts and fifth acts and -- if you're ready to embrace new challenges," Clinton said.
Johnston, originally from New York, is volunteering for the next two years as a health educator in the Moroccan province of Azilal. This incredible and inspiring lady blogs about her experiences and adventures here.
