It’s happened to all of us. We’ve considered taking up a new hobby or delving back into an old one that we used to love. Then somewhere, in the back of our minds, that little voice kicks in and says, “There’s no point, you’re too old.” How often do many of us let that nagging doubt keep us from exploring all the things we’re capable of?

If you’ve ever wished that there was a way to put those doubts to rest once and for all, then you’ve come to the right place. Here you’ll read the story of a man named Huang Yung-Fu. Huang is 96-years-old and only ten years ago was facing the threat of eviction from the home he’d lived in for 40 years.

Luckily, Huang seems to be an expert in the art of never giving up hope. As it turns out, his determination made him capable of the impossible. With no more than a paintbrush and his imagination, he was able to save the home he loved and put smiles on the faces of countless people around the world.
