A 50-year-old Nigerian school pupil shows it’s never too late to learn.

Shade Ajayi, aged 50, had never set foot in a classroom until middle age. In a pink dress and bonnet that now make up her uniform, she is happily learning to read and write alongside students aged 11 to 13 in Kwara state, Nigeria. As a child, Ajayi worked in her aunt’s shop instead of attending school. She now runs her own business making and selling purses and bags. Ajayi signed up to attend school in the last academic year, only for it to close due to the coronavirus pandemic. But schools reopened in January and Ajayi finally got her chance.
