Did you know that Asia is home to nearly half of the poorest people in the world? It is a sad reality that a lot of people cannot afford to purchase things that they need in life. However, for some people, poverty is not the reason to not succeed in life.
Uses a Broken Laptop
A teenager from Malaysia proved that poverty is not a hindrance to reach your dream. With determination, anything is possible. In a Facebook post, Twitter user Herman Jalani shared on his personal account a photo of his friend, whom he calls “Yeop” who is using a broken laptop in order to finish his requirements in school.
As seen in the photos, the laptop screen was taped to a cardboard box in order to maintain its standing position. An external keyboard was also plugged and connected to the display.
Since the entire framework has fallen off, the student had no choice but to expose the internal components of the computer.
Touch Netizens’ Hearts
A lot of social media users were inspired by the innovative skills of Yeop, reviving a near-dead laptop and his determination to finish his studies, despite their condition. The student gained adoration online and recognition online after showing that poverty is not a hindrance to studying.
In just a short time, it went viral on social media and caught the attention of a technology giant: Acer.
Touched by the perseverance of the student, the Laptop giant made the decision to provide the student with a brand new Acer Nito 5 as a reward for his passion. From his broken laptop, he is now a proud user of a brand new one that he can use for his studies.
