Have you ever walked 4.8 kilometers to your school in the freezing cold? We just assume that you have not! But, there are many students whose lifestyle is completely different from ours. But, they work very hard to have a better education. This story is also about such a courageous boy.
Let us dig up!
The protagonist of this story is a little boy who lives in a small village in China. His life was in a small house with his sister and his grandmother. This little kid is only eight years old, and he was named “Ice boy” later by the internet. Having such a nickname is because every day, he walked more than 3 miles to attend his school in a freezing cold climate.
Can you believe it?
We cannot even imagine such a thing.
Sometimes their temperature drops down to minus values such as -9 degree Celsius. Even without caring about the climate, this little boy walks to his school a very long distance. His Zhuanshanbao Primary school is located in the township of Xinjie in Yunnan Province, China.
This kid’s home was very far away from his school. His only wish was to get a better life than now. And he knew that the only method to get better is being educated.
So he works hard for it. They walked miles and miles in an icy climate without even having proper winter clothes to cover themselves.
When there is an exam in the school, many students pretend to go to school. But this little boy never missed his school exams.
On a snowy day, the temperature was about -9 degrees Celsius, and this boy went to his school as usual by walking to attend school exams.
But, that school had no heaters to help the students who were walking in the cold.
When this little kid went to school on that cold day, his hair and eyebrows were entirely covered with ice.
That did not look like hair, but it looked like a cap made with ice!
And his cheeks were red as a cherry!
The students at his school made fun of him and always found reasons to laugh at him. His courage was so high that even he did not fall from those kids’ sayings and laughter.
Mr. Fu Heng, the headmaster of his school, could not believe his eyes when he looked at this kid. He snapped some pictures of that little fellow, and that was the beginning of this crazy story.
With the spread of those pictures, many people got to know about him, and he became very famous on the internet.
This is the way he got his name as ‘ice boy.’
As a consequence of this incident, many people gathered around his school to support it. Finally, the school received 20 pieces of heating equipment, 144 warm clothing sets, and more than $15,000 donations.
That was the very first day of the final exams for this boy. When considering the temperature on that morning, it had dropped up to minus 9 degrees.
At that time, the headmaster also noted that this kid was considered the “class clown.” However, people say that if he keeps working hard for his studies like this in the future, he will surely get better.
This is the story of this little kid. His life is in a field of battle, but he will surely make it to a bed of roses.
Even if this child can make such dedication on behalf of education that much, why can we not?
We have everything when compared to this kid. Education is the most valuable asset that anyone can have during their lifetime.
There are no disadvantages of being educated!
So work hard for your own future benefits.
This picture was the beginning of this story. This kid was named ‘ice boy’ on the internet as he walks to his school in a freezing cold climate. The kids of his class consider him as the ‘class clown’ and always found reasons to laugh at him.
This is the path he walks to his school. As you can see this is not a easy walking path. This path is also covered with snow. And it is very hard to walk in these types of roads.
He lives with his sister and his grandmother in this small house, which is located in a small village in China.
This is the result of walking very long distances in a freezing climate.
It was a frigid climate on that day. The whole environment was covered with snow. The temperature was about -9 degrees Celsius
This is how the gate of the school looked like on the day of the exam. It was completely covered with snow. The headmaster of the school was amazed by seeing that kid with snowy hair and his red cheeks. Then he clicked some pictures of that kid, and then those photos were famous on the internet.
This is his school, and there were no enough facilities for the wee being of its students. At least there were no heaters to help the students who walk to school in a very cold climate. But as that picture which the headmaster clicked became famous, the school received $15000 donations, 144 sets of winter clothes, and 20 heating equipment.
This is a picture with his sister at his home.
People on the internet say that if he keeps working hard for his studies like this in the future, he will surely get better.
