A South Carolina high school student named Jaheim received a present from one of his classmates, and it brought him to tears!

He had mentioned to his friend Sofi Cruz Turner that he needed new shoes and couldn’t afford a new pair. Sofi knew Jaheim didn’t want to sound “in need” and she just happened to get her first job, so she secretly saved up enough money to purchase him a new pair of shoes, socks, a shirt and a book bag!

In a very touching video obtained by @CBS, Sofi presents Jaheim with the book bag. Once he realizes what was inside, you can see he becomes overwhelmed to the point of tears.

Sofi shared this video to her Facebook and explained why she decided to surprise Jaheim. She says that they’ve known each other since 3rd grade, and describes him as someone who always turns in assignments on time, “never misses school, always helping the teacher out with stuff in class, and always being a happy human being.”

“When giving him his stuff and watching him open his bag, all my emotions were coming out. Seeing him crying was very emotional because I could see that he didn’t know what to think,” Sofi later added. “I am so thankful to know that giving Jahiem those shoes made him so happy and allowed me to realize that giving someone something so special can be life changing,” she said.
