The young boy caught the attention of netizen Lito Ocampo, a freelance photographer, while the young kid was doing a school chore atop the footbridge near SM North.

As shown in the photo below, it was already dark and the young kid was still in school uniform, in the footbridge selling sampaguita to passersby.

The sight of the young kid studying and selling sampaguita has been getting mixed reactions in the social media.

One mother has turned emotional after looking at the photos of the kid.

Marilou Oliver turned sentimental and hoped that his children were like the young kid in the photo: “Sana ganyan ang dalawa kung anak.kaso hindi natin pweding hanapin ang ugaling ganyan sa iba kc iba sya.ang anak ko.binigay kuna lahat sapatos cellphone bag bikes ang mobile after walang pang bili ng sigarilyo bininta c cp.c bike sira na tinambak sa sulok.hindi lang yun.nag stop pa sa school mas masakit sa lahat.kaya lahat ng pinag hirap an ko napunta sa wala walang ipon kc puro padala tapos titigil pa sa school nayun na dapat yung pinag kukunan kunang inspiration nawala pa.kya makakita ako ng batang ganyan naiiyak ako.kc sabiko sa sariliko bakit ganun naging mabuti naman akong ina ginawa kunaman lahat para sakanila.yanpa sukli.tapos nuong hindi kuna pinadalan ng alouance sabi sa mama ko.sana dw mamatay nalang ako.masakit pero ba lang araw maiisip din nila yun kapag magulang na cla.”

Elisabeth Gusi remarked: “Nakaka proud naman batang toh parang ka edad mo lang ang anak ko iho…nakaka antig ng puso pagpatuloy mo yan anak malayo ang mararating mo…pangarap ay matutupad sa sikap at tiaga.”

Belle Swann could only hope success for the young kid: “God bless ur heart! Helping ur parents and d same time helping urself pra umangat sa buhay balang araw.”

Meanwhile, some netizens warn this is just a gimmick to get the sympathy of passersby and make more sales.

Sotnas Dahc commented: “Yung iba way lang yan para mkabenta.. lara kaawaan n kunwari nag aaral kasi un ang utos ng magulang.. parang sa sm north.. nkita ko ung isang nnay n pilit pinagbibihis yung anak nya ng school uniform. Para daw kaawaan at bilhan o bigyan ng pera.. akin lang sana kayong mga magulang ang gumagawa ng paraan para buhayin ang mga anak nyo di ung mga anak nyo ang gumagawa ng paraan para buhayin kayo.. ginawa nyo yan e.”

But Rizza Villanueva-boral dismissed the insinuation and commented: “Sa SM yan lgi pg uwian dun cla..nkta n nmin ni aye yan tnanong pnmin qng s san antonio cla nag aaral.. Akla nga nmin nagsusuot lng ng uniform un pla dun tlg cla nag aaral.”

The photos were posted in Novemeber 2016 but unfortunately, the post did not receive enough shares online.
