Shimon Peres Just Turned 93 And Joined Snapchat

Shimon Peres just turned 93, and he’s still keeping it real.

He was Israel’s 9th president and only retired in 2014. He was involved in politics for over 66 years, having been Prime Minister twice, a member of the Knesset since 1959 and a Nobel Peace Prize winner together with Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat.

But at 93, there was one more thing he wanted to do, and that was to join the trend of selfies and funny videos on Snapchat.

“This week I turned 93, and it seemed like just the right age to join Snapchat,” Peres posted on his Facebook. “Young people inspire me, and the most important thing for me is to hear what they have to say. Today, all the young people are on Snapchat, and I am happy to be on there with them…We must focus on creating a new generation where technology and science are the top priority.”
