Dr Sharon Cannon took to her Twitter to speak against discrimination based on age while revealing that she did certain things at an age considered too old.
Dr Sharon Cannon wrote:
“I hope you know you’re never too old to do anything. Had my daughter at 39. Earned my Ph.D. at 45. Won a teaching award at 61. Yeah—I’m that old, and I rock! Stop the bias about age—and particularly about aging women. We are wise and wonderful!
I have a couple of goals with this tweet:
1. Don’t talk yourself out of trying something because of your age.
2. Don’t dismiss a job applicant based on thinking the person is too old.
