An Alabama teacher broke down in tears as soon as her student’s parents handed over the keys to her new car. "No more sitting in the cold, no more riding the bus, no more waiting on somebody to come and pick me up!" she said.


Courtney Adeleye, the CEO and founder of The Mane Choice hair care products, knew she had to step in immediately after learning that her daughter's teacher was in a terrible financial situation, as reported by the USA Today.

The unnamed teacher had never had a car of her own, and she had to make multiple bus transfers or ask for a ride to get to and from her school.

Adeleye, who is known by her social media followers as someone who pays it forward, discovered from her husband that their child's teacher was in need of a car.


"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!” she posted to Instagram last month.

So Adeleye went to a local car dealership and chose a beautiful new vehicle. She then wrapped it in a bright blue ribbon and surprised the teacher.

As soon as she gave the keys to the teacher's brand new car, the woman couldn't hold back her tears.

The teacher hugged Adeleye and thanked her over and over again.


Adeleye posted to Instagram again a few days later, saying that the teacher told her “it felt good DRIVING to school!”

This isn’t the first time that she has helped someone in need. Forbes recently shared her story about how she grew her company.

From a $500 personal investment, the Mane Choice hair care products earned $25 million in just four years.

Adeleye then founded the program called Pay My bill to celebrate her success.

The program aims to pay a bill of one of her brand’s followers on Instagram every month. She has paid more than 150 bills so far, according to Forbes.
