While most women had their feet planted firmly on the ground and in the home, Azellia White had her sights on something much higher. She’s the incredible woman who made history in Texas by being the first woman and first Black woman as a licensed pilot in Texas.

Ms. White is still making history, and doing it all at age of 105 years old. A birthday she celebrated last month in 2018.

So what’s her secret to her old age? White told Eyewitness News she doesn’t smoke or drink, which she feels has helped her over the years.
