Most People Would’ve Quit School Over This. But What This Boy’s Doing Instead Inspired Me.

January 28, 2014 Inspiring

At just 20, Guo Shijun is one of the top students at his university. For most college students, that’s hard enough. But Guo Shijun also spends all day taking care of his paralyzed father.

After his father was injured in a building accident, Guo convinced university officials to let his father move into his dorm so he could take care of him full time. With a specially modified bed, and lots of time and dedication Guo Shijun takes care of both his dad and his studies.


This isn’t Guo’s first encounter with adversity. His mother was left mentally handicapped from illness when he was just a young boy and he grew up extremely poor. Still, he manages to remain positive saying: “I can’t say life is easy but the only way out of the problem is through hard work so I’m not complaining.”
