There are people all over the globe that are changing the world for the better. And guess what? Some of those people are into their 70s and above. Each day, they prove that no matter where you are in life, you can pursue your passions and really make a difference. Just take these ladies for example:
Sylvia Earle, 78
This oceanographer spends her life standing up for our oceans. When she was four months pregnant, she traveled 100 feet underwater and walked the ocean floor at a record depth of 1,250 feet. Just two years ago at the age of 76, she dove back down to that same historic dive site that she visited back in 1979. Earle is also the founder of Deep Ocean Exploration and Research as well as the Mission Blue and SEAlliance.
Doris Day, 90
Day has dedicated her time and energy to representing those who can't speak up for themselves: animals. The well-known actress and singer is the founder and president of the Doris Day Animal League and the Doris Day Animal Foundation. The former focuses on legislation regarding animal welfare issues, and the latter protects animals through educating the community.
Let these women motivate you to chase after your dreams and accomplish your goals during retirement living. They continue to prove each day that you can change the world simply by taking action.
