An 80-Year Old Chinese Model Shares an Important Message

Oh, man, the world can’t stop surprising me. This time the 80-year old Chinese model who is going up and down the runways proudly.

Can you imagine?

The important message is that it’s never too late to live your dream or to fight for it.

Deshun Wang is your next favorite person, or should I say, your favorite model. His appearance is breaking stereotypes all over the place.

I mean, the bravery to do something he does on a daily basis is phenomenal.

I liked acting, singing, dancing, playing musical instruments so much that I joined my work unit’s band,” said Wang. So, he took singing, dancing, and acting lessons at no cost from the Workers’ Cultural Palace in his city.

His path starts a long time ago when he was only 14-years-old. He began as a streetcar conductor. At 24, he became a theater actor.

What a strange path, huh?

At 40, Wang decided to bring another change in his life. He started learning English. It’s tough to imagine someone to take over another challenge in life with that age.

Five years later, this amazing person created a pantomime troupe. This wasn’t the only thing he’s been doing back then.

Alongside the pantomime assignments, he started teaching runway modeling in a Beijing fashion school.

Chinese had no sense of color or style. People wore black, white, gray, or blue. Some people wore army uniforms,” he stated. “I wanted to start a sense for fashion among ordinary people.

This wasn’t the start of his modeling career. However, he planted the seeds for what comes next.

Driven by his dream, at the age of 50, Wang started to work out in the gym. He hasn’t quit since then.

Maybe he never dreamed about walking on a catwalk, but in 2015 he made his appearance on the 2015 China Fashion Week.

Here are some inspirational quotes by this wonder man:

  • “Believe me, potential can be explored.”
  • “When you think it’s too late, be careful you don’t let that become your excuse for giving up.”
  • “No one can keep you from success except yourself.”
  • “When it’s time to shine, be the brightest.”

Oh, wow. I’m amazed.
