A teenager from Houston, Texas, was honored for her act of kindness after she took the time to help an elderly patron in need at the La Marque Waffle House, the restaurant she works at. As of Sunday, more than 130,000 people had reacted to the Facebook post and almost 7,000 have shared it. Amid clanking plates, a sizzling grill and customers on the go, an elderly man timidly asked Williams to cut his ham.

"I'm thankful to have seen this act of kindness and caring at the start of my day while everything in this world seems so negative, " Wolf wrote in her Facebook post.

She also received a $16,000 scholarship donated by Texas Southern University - a life-changing gift for a girl who still says she did nothing special.

Speaking to Chron, Williams said: "I didn't know the photo was taken until a couple hours later".

"Evoni always has a smile on her face", said Waffle House manager Mundarius Wright. "If we could all be like this waitress and take time to offer a helping hand [sic]". The post went viral on Facebook and has received over 121,000 likes and over 62,000 shares.

Evoni is looking to get a business or management degree and the cheque given to her works out as 4,000 dollars (£2,883) a semester - a massive helping hand for her to do so.

The City of La Marque reposted Wolf's post and commended Williams for her selfless act.

"Somebody tagged me and it immediately, it just touched my heart", Hocking told KTVI. "It's so wonderful that the younger generation cares about the older generation". "And I did", Williams said.

"He was like, 'My hands are not functioning too well.' He needed me to cut his food and I did", Williams told CBS News affiliate KHOU-TV. Among those to notice were representatives from Texas Southern University, in Houston.

"I have my own day!"
