Not everybody is lucky enough in life to be born into a rich, happy family. But it is up to us to make our dreams come true, regardless of the situation or the state of life into which we are born.

A student from the Philippines recently went viral with three gold medals in track and field, despite being almost barefoot running!

According to the post of Predirick B. Valenzuela on Facebook, in the 400-meter dash, the 800-meter run and the 1,500-meter run for elementary girls at the Iloilo Schools Sports Council Meet, Rhea Ballos of Salvacion Elementary School bagged the top awards.

The young athlete could be seen sitting on the pictures, watching the proceedings. But on her feet are a pair of barely-there makeshift “shoes” made from brown surgical tape. The young girl had wrapped on that tape on her feet, also carefully putting some on her toes.

What’s so cool about this image is that the young girl actually drew the “Nike” logo on her homemade shoes, as well as adding the name of the brand on the side of her barely there footwear.

The photos drew a lot of reactions on the internet, many voicing their desire to give shoes to the girl. We hope that before Christmas she will get those shoes!
