Super Mamika inspires us all
Many older adults aren’t as independent as they used to be, but Super Mamika isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
95 year old Super Mamika is born
When Sacha Goldberger’s grandmother, Frederika, retired in her 80s, she became bored and unhappy. Sacha, a French photographer, wanted to cheer her up and keep her busy so he began photographing her.
Their photos evolved over time and Frederika became Super Mamika, a costumed 95 year old super hero. Mamika means “my little grandma” in Hungarian. “Before, I’d see pictures of older people and they always looked sad,” Sacha said. “I wanted to show that you can be old and still have a sense of humor and be fun.”
