A Jamaican centenarian is now the oldest living person in the world!
Violet Brown who is 117 years and 36 days old, is now the current oldest person since Italian Emma Morano passed away on the weekend.
Brown or ‘Aunt V’ as her family and friends like to call her avoids rum but eats everything she wants except for chicken and pork. She once told the Jamaica Gleaner back in 2010 that her secret to her longevity is a scripture from the Bible’s Old Testament: that she lives by, that says “Honor your mother and father so your days may be long…”
Brown was born March 10, 1900 and is believed to be one of the two remaining persons who was born in the 19th century.
Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness has since expressed congratulations to Brown.
