90-year-old graduates nail school, plans to open spa

A Tennessee woman is proving that you are never too old to accomplish your goals. Cassie Hobby, 90, did not let her age stop her from signing up for classes to become a nail technician.  

"I just wanted to learn how to do fancy nails," said Hobby.

Hobby has trouble getting around. She has a broken hip and uses a walker. But she has no problem sitting down and doing nails.

"She's always in the best mood.  So anytime you feel like you're struggling that day or not having a good day, you can just think about Cassie and know that, you know she just gets up and comes in with a great attitude and so I just think it makes it a great atmosphere," said Misty Pena, founder of the Sweetwater Institute of Cosmetology.

Hobby received her diploma on Tuesday. She plans to open up a spa with her daughter.
