Seve Gat wanted to visit China, so she Photoshopped herself there. Now, she gets to go for real.

The Kenyan woman achieved sweet, sweet Internet notoriety with her delightful travel-themed photo series, which chronicles her very beautiful, very fake Asian vacation.


The photos have been shared on Facebook hundreds of times, ostensibly because the Photoshop work isn’t that great.

Well, laugh all you want, haters. Seve probably won’t hear you — she’ll be busy hopping on a jet to Beijing.


Businessman Sam Gichuru came across Gat’s photos online — and was so struck by them, he raised enough money to send Gat to China IRL.

Gat hasn’t gone on her trip yet (she’s still applying for a passport), but we hope she takes lots of photos.

In the meantime, Twitter is sending her on even more vacations.
