Some people are here to show us that age is really just a number and that it shouldn’t limit us in anything we want to do. Helen Ruth Elam Van Winkle, also known as Baddiewinkle, is one of them. She was born in 1928 and today, aged 90, she’s one of the biggest Instagram stars.
Before her Instagram influencer career, she lived a completely different life. “I had a little 6-acre farm. I took care of it by myself for 15 years. I did everything that you’re supposed to do: mowed, trimmed, had a little garden. I kept busy at all times,” she shares.
One picture of her on the internet was all it took. Her great-granddaughter snapped a photo of her beloved Baddie and posted it online, and it turned out that people loved her. 3.8 million people are currently following Baddiewinkle’s account. Scroll down to see why.
