This man's inspiring graduation photo is going viral

This guy is seventy and achieving more than you.


The photo was initially shared by UniLad, but uploaded to Tumblr where it was reblogged thousands of times.

A comment under the image when it was shared on UniLad claimed the man is called Tap Kieu, a Vietnamese man who ‘left his country during a time of persecution wearing only one shoe’.

After a long life building for his family, he wanted to go back and do this for himself. His lifelong dream was to be a choral director, so he studied music and made his dream come true. Go Tap, VCU Music class of 2015!

Buzzfeed were able to confirm that Kieu was a graduate at Virginia Commonwealth University and are ‘certainly proud of him’ and ‘know he’ll go on to do great things!’
