Wang told the local media that he feels really cold when he walks to school, but that it is not so difficult. In the interview, he also spoke of his dream of visiting Beijing one day. "I want to see how children study there," he said.

The photo was taken by the boy’s teacher, and the principal said that Wang is a very good student, especially in Mathematics. He faced the cold because he had a test that day.

In addition to his face and frozen hair, the boy had also had his hands burned by the cold by the time he arrived at school. His situation has been a wake-up call about the harsh winter China is going through, and his school has received monetary donations in order to install a better on-site heating system.
