A nonagenarian has started a new career as a valuable part of Silicon Valley’s tech world, bringing her years of wisdom to the industry.
When Barbara Beskind was a child, she wanted to become an inventor. At 91 years old, she’s living that dream as a tech designer for IDEO, a firm in Palo Alto, California, according to Today.com. Beskind became an employee last year and has since been working primarily on projects that relate to aging.
“I want to be someplace stimulating, with people who are passionate and creative,” she told the Wall Street Journal. “This is the best experience I have had in my professional life.”
