Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
A homeless high school student has been gifted a car by a complete stranger - who jumped out of a dumpster to surprise her with the gift.
Sionna Brenn, 19, moved to the US from Ethiopia when she was nine, and was placed in an abusive foster home. She managed to leave the family and moved to Houston, but was declared homeless by the state.
The teenager is an honor student, and works 35 hours a week at Starbucks to support herself. She received a scholarship to the University of Texas - but had no way to get there, Fox reported.
Moving footage of the surprise shows Sionna bringing trash out to the dumpsters, and falling to the ground when she is confronted by cameras, the new car, and Good Samaritan Charlie Jabaley.

Jabaley, the former manager of 2 Chainz, said he was inspired by the tenacious student, and decided to help her out through his Dream Machine Tour.
The overwhelmed teenager is seen with her head in her hands as her hands as Jabaley jumps out of the dumpster and runs towards her.
He announced the brand new Toyota Corolla was all hers, and even threw in free driving lessons.
'It's more than a dream. It's crazy,' Brenn tearfully told cameras there to catch the surprise.
'More than anything, glory to God because I wouldn't' be here without Him.'
Through her good grades, she has been offered a scholarship to attend the University of Texas when she finishes high school (pictured: the new car)
Jabaley left the music industry after he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He lost 125 pounds to help restore his health, and is now sponsored by Nike as an Ironman.
He is now riding a bike from Los Angeles to New York - an endeavor that will take him less than three months, and stopping along the way to surprise those in need.
'Everywhere we go, we're looking for people who have dreams and how we can help them,' he said.
