Man in his 80s is studying law at the Lebanese University

A man in his 80s named Sahil Al Kouwas is a law student at the Lebanese University in Saida. He holds several PhDs and is a prominent Lebanese journalist. Al Kouwas was studying law in Cairo, Egypt. According to


, he was visiting his parents in Lebanon when the civil war started, and he couldn’t go back to university to present the exams until three days later. He couldn’t repeat some of the courses; therefore, he was not able to graduate. So, he studied media and graduated in 1964. Even though he succeeded in his field, he always wanted to study law, and that’s what he did. The students and the professors are still surprised by his presence. We can learn so much from his experience. First, we should be learning no matter how old we are. Second, it’s never too late to achieve our goals. Respect!
