Everyone is well aware that POVERTY IS NOT AN OBSTACLE TO GET SUCCEED, but the 8 – year old Chinese boy has proved it. He lives far away in a small village with his sister and grandmother. Although he lives in a poor condition but he perceives that everything will get better if only he gets educated. It was too cold even the temperature has dropped to 16o F (-9o C). His school was far away from his house. He walked 3 miles (4.8 km) to Zhuanshanbao Primary School in the city of Xinjie in Yunnan Province, China. It was the first day of his final exam. Fu Heng, the headmaster of the school could not believe his eyes that the boy has icicles instead of hairs and eyebrows contrasting with burning red cheeks. His dedication and bravery did not bend in front of the tough situation. Heng noticed that the boy has a positive attitude with his classmates. He is considered as a “class clown” as he finds new and different ways to make his 16 class fellow die of laughter.
Despite of living in poverty, he has strong beliefs that one day he will get succeed and will prove himself. People called him “Ice boy” because in such a cold temperature he could not want to miss his exam, where most of us probably can do everything to avoid exams. As it is well written that “Anyone who has struggled with poverty knows how extremely expensive it is to be poor” which is best suited to this boy.
Heng said that the school tries to watch over him and other students as much as possible by them. They provide students with breakfast but he admitted that the school does not even have heaters for the students who walk for a long distance in a cold temperature. They do not have proper heating equipment due to lack of funding. People on the internet hope that ice boy can build himself a better life if he continues to put his education first. People contribute for the condition of the school in such a cold temperature.
School has received more than $15,000 in donation. People helped them with 20 heating equipment so that the classes will remain warm and students who walk for a long distance need not to face any problem while studying. People also contribute 144 warm set of clothes to the students of the school, because they know their small efforts can give these students a bright future.
