A 97-year-old Minnesota resident is preparing to vote for the first time after obtaining U.S citizenship.

A retired physics teacher, Chengyi Pan, who emigrated from China, in 2009 after the death of her husband, joined her two children in America, which she called “the best country in the world.”

She was granted citizenship in September and wants to do all she can to continue to help the U.S. and follow the democratic way.
