68 Year-Old Supermodel Is Killing It On The Catwalk.

Age is only a number. After we hit a certain number or decade, we are led to believe there are limits, things we can no longer do. In reality, it is never too late to make a dream come true or give up on a passion.

Julia Child didn't write her first cookbook until she was 50, Harland Sanders aka Colonel Sanders was 62 when he franchised Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Grandma Moses didn't begin painting her folk art until she was 78. Throughout history, men and women have made the choice to simply ignore their age and do what they love.

Maye Musk is more than just a grandmother.

At the tender age of 68, she is a supermodel. She was a favourite among designers during New York Fashion Week. She strutted down the runway among girls who were younger than her by several decades.

Things haven't always been easy. She raised three kids by herself.

"I had to house and feed 3 kids without maintenance. Poverty makes you work really hard. I remember crying when one of my kids spilled milk. The saying goes 'don’t cry over spilled milk.' I cried because I couldn’t buy another milk that day," she admits.
