My 92 year old grandmother posted this picture from 1916 on Facebook today. The woman on the right is my great-great grandmother, accompanying her 102 year old friend (center) to vote for her first time ever.
17th-century Mexican poet Sister Juana Ines de la Cruz. She learned how to read and write at age 3. By age 5, she reportedly could do accounts. At age 8, she wrote a poem on the Eucharist. By early teen years, she had mastered Greek logic and she was teaching Latin to young children. She also learned the Aztec language of Nahuatl and wrote some short poems in that language. In 1667, she entered the Convent of the Discalced Carmelites. She became famous as a poet of early Mexican literature.
