An incoming high school senior’s “Mulan”-themed student ID photo is winning massive internet points after going viral on Twitter for its sheer awesomeness.
June Kyra Dela Chica’s hilarious take on the “matchmaker”, one of the characters from Disney’s “Mulan” has racked up over 100,000 retweets and almost 200,000 likes as of this writing.
The 17-year-old student class president from Aloha High School in Beaverton, Oregon, is now being hailed as a “hero” or “queen” by followers after donning a clever makeup and convincing facial expression before posing for her epic, well-loved ID picture.
“To be honest, when I posted it on Instagram [and] on Twitter I thought my Instagram would be the only thing getting notifications LOL,”
Dela Chica told BuzzFeed News. “My Twitter’s kinda dry usually; I honestly would have never thought it would even get over 20 retweets, let alone 40,000.”
Dela Chica came up with the idea after she figured that she wanted to do something fun for her school ID. It just took the photographer a little convincing to shoot her in the hilarious makeup and pose.
Now that her ID has gone viral, she occasionally finds her pictures being posted by random parody accounts in social media.
”I’VE WAITED MY ENTIRE HIGH SCHOOL CAREER TO DO THIS AND AM PROUD TO SAY I HAVE BROUGHT HONOR TO THE FAMILY,” Dela Chica wrote on Instagram.
