Even if you have a hectic schedule just drop every thing to read this heart warming story these kind of stories are very hard to come by nowadays.

Some persons go that extra mile to do something good for others. And one such person is William Clark who is a teacher in GEMS World Academy Dubai. Tae Woong- jeong a Korean boy of 10 years age had fear of public speaking, his teacher thought that he is keeping mum because of language difficulties.

But Mr. Clark noted that the boy has a good command in writing English and he spoke the language well with his friends. Then someone in the class joked that if he speaks then the teacher might shave his head.

Thus the Tae Woong Project was born the whole school was informed about this challenge by distributing flyers that if the little boy sang in the crowd the teacher would shave his head.

Days flew into months but nothing happened then one Thursday Tae took up the challenge and sang the Korean national anthem in front of the whole school and every body cried. The brave teacher suffers from psoriasis on his scalp but yet he kept his promise.
