As seen in the now-viral photos, the young boy fell asleep leaning to the side of the walkway with a book on his lap showing that he had been studying while the strings of the Sampaguita he’s selling was firmly attached to his hand. The tired boy even used his bag as a pillow.
Many were also impressed by how diligent the young boy was as he continued to focus on his studies even while working in the street, this only shows that he is determined to study and learn to make sure he gets good grades in school. In that way, he can provide a better life for his family in the future.
