The world's oldest person has become a year older after celebrating her 114th birthday.

Hendrikje van Andel-Shipper was born on June 29, 1890, in The Netherlands.

She became the youngest person since 1988 to be the oldest in the world after Puerto Rican Ramona Iglesias-Jordan died on March 29 aged 114 years and 211 days.

We should all hope to live that long. Stop and think, she was born before President Reagan and she is till kicking.
