China’s Deshun Wang celebrated a significant milestone on September 20th: he blew out the candles on his 80th birthday cake.
Eighty is a milestone. There’s no doubt about it. By the time you hit 80, your foot’s well and truly on the brakes. You don’t get out as much. You might have the occasional fall. You insist that you’re still fine to live by yourself. You rip off your shirt and strut the catwalk –
This is Wang Deshun. He’s an 80 year old fashion model from China and with one of the most inspirational messages we’ve heard in a while. “I still have dreams to achieve. 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.” – Wang Deshun.

So, needless to say Wang isn’t your average 80-year-old.
Attention was drawn to Wang Deshun after a fashion show in late 2015, in which he walked the catwalk topless, exhibiting his flowing locks of white hair and super-toned tummy.
