The incident took place on March 3 at La Marque in Texas, USA, when Adrian Charpentier came into the restaurant. He had recently undergone surgery, which made it difficult for him to cut his food, reports the Daily Mail. Evoni cut up his food for him, and her small act of kindness was captured on camera:
As the post gained attention, praise started pouring in for the teenager. "She's an angel," wrote one person. "That was very kind and sweet," said another.
It eventually caught the eye of Texas Southern University, and they decided to present Evoni with a $16,000 scholarship. "Her act of kindness went viral on social media, and today Texas Southern University returned that act of kindness by surprising Evoni Williams with a scholarship," they said.
Not only this, she was also honoured by the mayor of La Marque, Bobby Hocking.
"It just came from the heart," Evoni said to ABC 7 about her now-famous act.
