PORT-AU=PRINCE, Haiti (HCNN) -- A Haitian woman, Cathrine Augustin, is 110 years-old, enjoys good health conditions and is in very good physical and mental shape, as she toured radio stations this week in the Caribbean country's capital.

Augustin celebrated her 110th anniversary on November 25 and was welcome at one of the most popular radio shows on Radio Caraibes FM in Port-au-Prince where she told the story of her life.

"I have one son and many grand and grand-grand children who give me a lot of affection and who take good care of me," Cathrine Augustin told HCNN this week. "I am enjoying life, I feel good and I see a doctor very rarely," she said.

Augustin comes from the Northern town of Port-de-Paix, but she has been living with her grand children in the capital for several years now.

"I always eat good organic food that freshly comes from the farm and I will continue to do that," Augustin told HCNN when asked about her secrets to keep such good shape at her age.
