This Kid Paid For His Education By Doing Something Rather Unique…

Being a comedy page and constantly uploading loads of memes, I thought that it would be appropriate to talk about this topic. After all, having the power to change your own future is probably the best feeling in the world. Actually, I take that back. Second best feeling.

Jake is a young lad from Ghana, Africa. I must admit that I have a lot of respect for him due to what he has done. His serious facial expressions have allowed him to become an overnight internet sensation on the continent. Here’s some photos of him:

Of course, the internet responded brilliantly to these photos. Here’s a few highlights that I found for you guys to check out:



Recently, the photographer of the original pictures setup a GoFundMe page to help pay for Jake’s education. Within the first day, it had already reached $2,000!

She said:

“This money could make a huge difference to the kids – this could be something really positive going forward. I will be travelling back to Ghana to the village of Asempanaye to continue teaching the children and providing resources.

Most importantly I would love to help Jake in his education as well as others who are extremely eager to learn.”

What a heartwarming story! You can donate to the page HERE.
