The internet has nicknamed this 8-year-old Chinese student as the ‘Ice Boy’

And while you probably did everything you could to avoid an exam at school, he did the opposite

‘Ice Boy’ walked approximately 3 miles (4,8 km) to his primary school in 16°F (-9°C) cold so he would not miss his test

“It was the first day of their final exams,” the headmaster who snapped pictures of the student said

“The temperatures dropped to minus nine degrees Celsius in about 30 minutes that morning”

The teacher pointed out that the school does not even have heaters to help pupils warm up after a long walk

The boy lives far away in a small village with his sister and grandmother

He lives in poor conditions, but remains certain his life will get better if only he gets educated

People on the internet were incredibly moved by the boy’s trek

Since the photo got viral, the school has received more than $15,000 in donations, 20 heating equipment and 144 warm set of clothes
