The CEO of a hair company surprised her daughter’s teacher with a brand new car after learning the woman didn’t have reliable transportation.

When Courtney Adeleye’s husband told her that their daughter’s teacher took multiple buses to get to and from work every day, she knew she had to step in and help.

Adeleye, the CEO and founder of The Mane Choice haircare products, and her husband, who is a medical doctor, bought the teacher a new car and surprised her at the school with it.

The couple’s 11-year-old daughter filmed the moment her parents brought the teacher outside to see her car for the first time.

“Are you serious?” the teacher says, getting emotional. “You’re really serious? Oh my gosh! I cannot believe this! Y’all just don’t know.”

In the video’s caption, Adeleye says the teacher has never had a new car before and that being able to help someone in their time of need is how she defines success.

“When my husband tells me that the teacher who has been teaching my girls for the last few years has been catching multiple buses to get to and from work every day in the hot sun and cold! He said we should give her something, I said….say no more!”

When you ask me to define success….this is my response! (Give to those without expectations). All glory to GOD!

Adeleye is known amongst her fans to lend a helping hand. The beauty entrepreneur started the Pay My Bill program where she offers to pay the bill of one of her followers. According to Forbes, she has paid bills for more than 150 of her social media followers.

“It’s me showing the world that we can all jump in and do something. It doesn’t have to be of the magnitude of what I’m doing, but any initiative can help,” Adeleye told Forbes about her social impact efforts.
