Not long ago, the photo of a little boy doing homework under street light late night made the rounds online. I even shared it on my Facebook page and remarked how some people are born to succeed even in the worst circumstances.
A website way more important than this one did some digging and discovered the boy is 9-year-old Daniel Cabrera. Studying on that curb late at night and doing homework under street light was probably the smartest decision that kid has made in his young life.
A local politician set up a scholarship for him and even McDonald’s, the restaurant the kid is set up in front of, announced they’ve also set up a scholarship for Daniel. The chain also set up a reading program for 400 first graders in Daniel’s neighborhood, and his little brother is one of the students who’ll take part.
The latest scholarship will cover all Daniel’s school supplies, uniforms, and other expenses until he finishes high school. Thanks to the outpouring of support, he’ll have enough to cover all his educational needs until he graduates college.
The little boy doing homework under street light gets a happy ending. Amazing stuff. Sometimes the internet isn’t so bad. Sometimes.
