Misao Okawa is a young, 117 years old. She’s also world’s oldest person.
Okawa celebrated her birthday a day early with family, and when asked about her long life she had a very simple, yet poignant response.
“It seemed rather short,” she said.
Okawa has said in the past that the secret to her long life has been eating sushi and regularly getting 8 hours of sleep, according to Guinness World Records.
Okawa was born on March 5, 1898, and she officially claimed the Guinness record title in June 2013 after Japan’s Jiroemon Kimura died at 116.
