While many students who live in comfortable homes complain about not getting the stuff they want, such as a new school bag or the latest gadget, there’s this kid who didn’t even have electricity at home yet was happily doing his homework by taking advantage of the light outside a 24-hour fast food outlet. For that, Daniel gained admiration from a lot of netizens.

His story would reverberate across social media, with many Filipino netizens predicting that he would have a good life in the future because he knows how to find ways to fix his problems – even if that problem is something as serious for a kid as finding enough light to work on his assignments.
