9-year old Daniel Cabrera was spotted studying late at night just outside the restaurant in Mandaue City, making use of the light that spilled from the interiors so he can read. He was using a makeshift bench as study table. During that time, medical student Joyce Torrefranca was walking along the street when she saw the boy. Moved by this touching scene, she took a photo and shared it on her Facebook page. It quickly became viral and the netizens became impressed with the boy’s perseverance.
