Homeless boy studying by McDonald's light inspires thousands

This photo of a young homeless boy doing his homework using the light from a McDonald's is inspiring people all over the world.

Medical student, Joyce Torrefranca, took the picture in the Philippine city of Cebu and posted it on Facebook saying: "I got inspired by a kid."

It shows 9-year-old Daniel Cabrera kneeling on the pavement with the famous golden arches in the background.

He's using a makeshift wooden bench as he writes in his workbook.

"For me as a student, it just hit me a lot, like big time," Joyce Torrefranca told the Philippine news network ABS-CBN.

"This kid, he doesn't have anything but he has dedication to study."
