A small act kindness can go a long way.

Remember Evoni Williams, the 18-year-old Waffle House employee who took a moment to help an elderly man by cutting his ham for him? The viral photo, first posted on Facebook by Laura Wolf, caught the attention Texas Southern University. Fox News reports that as a thank you gesture and in recognition Evoni’s kindness, “TSU presented her with a $16,000 scholarship and La Marque mayor Bobby Hocking honored her with her own day.”

The young woman reportedly told ABC 13 that she wasn’t looking for anything in return, saying that’s how she was raised and “it just came from the heart.” Nonetheless, you deserve every bit good karma coming your way Evoni—what a beautiful girl.
