A photo of a boy who was left with frozen hair and eyelashes after he walked to school in sub-zero temperatures has gone viral. Wang Fuman was pictured with icicles on his eyebrows, hair, eyelashes and his thin jacket after he made it to class in temperatures of -9C.
The photo was taken by his teacher after his daily 4.5km walk to school in China’s Yunnan province. It has also caused debate about the “left behind child” problem which is when the parents have to migrate across china for work while they leave their kids with the grand parents in small villages across China.
What fascinates us at Hope Faculty is:
Wang is one determined little boy, you can just tell nothing was going to stop his education, you could just imagine him reassuring his dear old granny that he will be safe and warm trust him.
You can tell from the photo Wang is thinking
” what is all the commotion about, teacher you know I am happy and proud to go school, ok I know my hair looks funny. Go on then take a pic but don’t act like you didn’t know! this has been my school route for years.”
Wang, you looked out your window and thought “yay me and my pals are going to slide, sleigh and have snowball fights all the way to school” he does not know that to most modern-day parents that was a gauntlet of death, and they would be suing the schools for attempted murder, for just being open and making their kids have to go, kids that could probably not survive the 4.5km walk without collapsing or needing a time out! so imagine them in -9c!!!
This story and the photo of Wang just melted our hearts but more so is the positivity and determination projected. To Hope Faculty this is simply a story about a boy who went school and did not let the weather spoil his attendance.
For Hope Faculty, Wang in his young age has demonstrated great qualities such as determination, confidence, being focused, trust, self-motivation, application, pragmatism, strength and willingness. The motivation to progress, and get his knowledge up, all this without complaining or knowing how hard of a life he even has.
