The CEO of a hair care company recently surprised her daughter's teacher with a brand new car after learning the teacher was taking several different buses and spending hours every day to get to and from work.

What led to this?

"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!" Courtney Adeleye, CEO and founder of The Mane Choice hair care products, wrote on her Instagram account.

Although she was not identified, the woman teaches kindergarten at Huntsville Christian Academy in Huntsville, Alabama, WFSA-TV reported.

Adeleye and her husband, who is a medical doctor, bought the sparkling white car and had it delivered to the school with big, blue bow on the hood.

The couple’s 11-year-old daughter filmed the moment the teacher first saw the car.

“Are you serious?” the teacher says in the video, as she begins to cry. She also hugs Adeleye and her husband.

Adeleye also wrote in the caption of the video that the teacher has never had a new car before.

“She's like legit the sweetest person you would ever want to meet!!!” she wrote.

Why does she do it?

Adeleye said being able to help others is how she defines success.

The beauty CEO is known on social media for helping others in need, according to the Daily Mail. She started the Pay My Bill program where she offers to pay the bill of one of her followers. To date, Adeleye has paid a bill for more than 150 of her social media followers.

Adeleye got her start through her YouTube channel that documented her journey to having healthy hair, according to reports. She then used her background in the health and medical field to start The Mane Choice. Her business has grown to more than $25 million in sales over the past four years, and her products are sold in more than 20,000 stores nationwide.
