Jessie Gallan was the oldest woman in Scotland which was officially presented. She was 109 years old. During an interview, she wanted to reveal the secret to her long life. It was something very funny and also very simple.
Her tips for a healthy and long life were to start avoiding men and also eat porridge for breakfast every single day!
She has been hiding from men literally!
According to Ms. Gallan, they only brought trouble and they aren’t worth it.
The woman has been independent throughout her whole life and has worked hard since she was a teenager. Gallan had to learn how to live alone and earn for herself since she was 13, because she has then left her home. She never married and worked hard during her whole life. She rarely took a holiday.
In the following interview, she discusses her life before and after she turned 100.
The people from the nursing home where she lived considered her as an amazing person.
Sadly, Ms. Gallan passed away several weeks after the interview in Scotland.
