A great-great-grandmother from Georgia, USA has officially become the world's oldest living person.

Born in 1896 and having lived through both world wars Besse Cooper has seen more than most people, she lived on her own until the age of 105 but now resides in a nursing home. "I mind my business and I don't eat junk food," she says.

"Since her birth in 1896 Mrs Cooper has seen 21 different presidents from Grover Cleveland to Barack Obama, and lived through two world wars and the great depression."

Dear lord! Way too old in my book. I don't want to be around here that long. Once I need help to continue to live, I want to just go.

I would love to listen to what she has to say, her prespective on how America and the world has changed throughout the past century. Wow. I'm amazed really.
