Courtney Adeleye is the founder of The Mane Choice hair care products, a hair care line for women of color. A highly successful businesswoman, she began her professional journey as a registered nurse. Raised in Detroit, she worked to help her family while putting herself through college. Her company, now wildly successful, grew from a $500 personal investment to $25 million in sales in just 4 years with products sold in more than 20,000 stores nationwide. Throughout her history, one refrain has remained constant – a belief that true success comes when you give to those who cannot reciprocate.
For all of her business successes and personal achievements, Adeleye is now gaining recognition for the amazing thing she did in a now-viral video after discovering a situation with a teacher at her daughter’s school. Rather than simply wring her hands wishing somebody somewhere would do something or offer meaningless platitudes, Adeleye, chose to act.
Adeleye first got her start as a YouTube personality documenting her own personal journey with healthy hair. As her following grew, she used her background in the medical field to create hair products for women of color. Known by her social media followers as someone who pays it forward, her latest act of goodwill was to make sure her daughter’s teacher will be able to get to school on her own.
The teacher had never owned a new car of her own and had to make multiple bus transfers or ask for a ride just to get to and from her school, according to the “Today” show.
Adeleye found out from her husband that their daughter’s teacher was in need of a car.
The Daily Mail reports –
“The CEO of a black hair company surprised her daughters’ teacher with a brand new car after learning the woman took multiple buses to get to and from work every day.
Courtney Adeleye, the CEO and founder of The Mane Choice hair care products, said she had to step in and help when her husband told her that a teacher at their children’s school didn’t have reliable transportation.
Adeleye and her husband, who is a medical doctor, went out and bought the unnamed teacher a shiny, white new car and had it delivered to the school.
The couple’s 11-year-old daughter filmed the touching moment Adeleye brought the teacher outside to see her car for the first time.
‘Are you serious?’ the teacher says, getting emotional. ‘You’re really serious? Oh my gosh!’
The teacher then breaks down in tears as she hugs Adeleye and her husband.
‘I cannot believe this! Y’all just don’t know,’ she cries, as she goes to check out the new car, which appears to be a Ford Focus.
The 2018 Ford Focus starts at nearly $18,000.
Adeleye said 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.
The beauty entrepreneur also said being able to help someone in their time of need is how she defines success.”
Adeleye posted to Instagram – “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 everyday in the hot sun and cold! He said we should giver 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!”

Adeleye then chose to act, going to a local car dealership and she then picked out a brand new vehicle, wrapped it in a bow and surprised the unidentified teacher, the “Today” show reported.
According to a July Forbes profile on Adeleye, she’s paid a bill for more than 150 of her social media followers. Adeleye is known amongst her fans to lend a helping hand. The beauty guru and CEO started the Pay My Bill program where she offers to pay the bill of one of her followers.
Forbes reports of Adeleye’s reason for starting such a program –
“I always knew I wanted to be a socially-driven, customer-based company. But I could not have done it without my supporters or my followers on social media. Those were the people going into Wal-Mart and Sally Beauty stores and actually demanding my products and that made my job much easier, so I wanted to give them something back. I’m always on social media and I find that I become attached to the people following The Mane Choice. I started seeing the same people and getting insight into their struggles and the things they were happy about. I wanted to go beyond just making a really good product they could believe in. I wanted to do something on a personal level.
When asked about the 150+ bills she had paid off and which of the stories stuck with her the most, Adeleye responded with – “It’s so crazy because every week, there’s a new story to tell, but I think the time that really stopped me in my tracks was when I used “Pay My Bill” in a different way than usual – when Hurricane Harvey hit Texas. It was so devastating to see people unable to find their family members and loved ones. I felt almost crippled, wondering what I could do from Alabama (my hometown). So I decided to take “Pay My Bill” and use it to help those affected in Texas. I started putting as many people as I could up in hotels to get them off of the streets. Some people literally had to swim to get to get there. That was definitely the most impactful story so far.”
Kurt Russel SHOWED Overpaid Celebs To Shut Up About Trump – Hits Them Where It Hurts!
Since the second that Donald Trump was declared as our next president, liberals have not stopped complaining about the outcome, even after more than a year with him in the White House. The despicable display reached the height of annoyance during every ego-stroking awards ceremony since President Trump was elected. All have turned into a Trump-trashing session for pissed of celebrities to get far too much off their chest about our unapologetic leader.
However, not everyone in Hollywood shares the same opinion as the most outspoken offender, Meryl Streep, as Kurt Russell just showed her and all of Trump’s other famous foes that it’s time to shut up about our president.
If you haven’t heard much from Russell lately, it’s because he falls into the rare category of celebrities who isn’t crying over Hillary Clinton’s loss and doesn’t feel that he needs to make his political opinions known. He’s simply doing what he’s paid well to do and wishes others in the biz would too. Since they continue to throw tantrums and trash Trump on a public stage, Russell reached his breaking point and finally fired back hard.
Should President Trump shut the border down now with no more warnings about it or delay?

“This is a business that’s heavily promulgated by people who have a politically liberal bent,” Russell began in his blistering beratement of these overpaid crybabies after what Streep said at the Golden Globes. “I don’t begrudge them that. I’m a libertarian; frankly, I think my liberalness goes far beyond theirs in a lot of ways,” he added, as reported by the American Lookout. “But yeah, we think differently, and maybe that’s cut me out of some things. I don’t care,” he said before dropping a brutal announcement on these Streep and her lemmings that left them burning.

Explaining that they’re not empowered in this business by their disgraceful attitudes against our leaders, the badass actor said they better be prepared to put their money where their nasty mouths are since they could be out of work. “People know I get along great with all kinds of directors, all kinds of actors. And I tell you, you hire me, I will show up, 24/7, and I will give you 100%. I will help you fix whatever problems come up. You hire me, I’m your boy. It’s just, it’s all about the work. And when that’s done, I am done.”
Kurt has said recently that “the last thing I like to watch is entertainers or actors get political,” which he just proved by clearly pointing out that nobody cares what celebrities have to say about politics, and that their obnoxious behavior only shows how unemployable they are. They need to just stick to what they are overpaid to do and leave the rest to the adults in charge.
BREAKING: Hundreds Of Raging Migrants Just Stormed US Border Checkpoint (VIDEOS)
(FOX NEWS) Images and videos posted on social media Sunday afternoon appeared to show hundreds of migrants from the leading Central American caravan rushing the border at the point of entry in San Ysidro, Calif., in a major test for both U.S. border authorities and Mexican officials.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have suspended northbound and southbound vehicle and pedestrian crossings at the San Ysidro port of entry, officials told Fox News. It was not immediately clear if any members of the caravan made it past the point of entry into the United States.
Fox News had confirmed early Sunday through an organizer for Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the group helping organize the leading Central American migrant caravan, that members of the caravan were planning to attempt to cross the point of entry at San Ysidro, Calif., on Sunday afternoon.
In anticipation of the planned effort, U.S. border officials said they had deployed additional personnel to the San Ysidro port of entry on Sunday, including Air and Marine agents.

The developments come as Mexico’s incoming government denied reports Saturday that it had struck a deal with the White House to keep asylum-seekers in the country while their claims move through U.S. immigration courts. President Trump, for his part, again threatened to close the entire southern border if no deal could be reached between the two counties.

On Saturday, the first episode of caravan-related violence directed at U.S. authorities was reported by U.S. Border Patrol in Arizona, as a 31-year-old Honduran man who apparently split off from the caravan threw rocks at agents and a helicopter after setting a tree on fire.

The prospective deal between the U.S. and Mexico was seen as a way to dissuade thousands of Central American migrants from seeking asylum in the U.S., a process that can take years. The legal bar for claiming asylum is high and generally requires applicants to show a specific risk of persecution based on factors such as race, nationality, politics or religion.
Trump administration officials have characterized the vast majority of asylum claims as fraudulent or legally insufficient, and have taken steps to reduce the backlog of asylum claims that they say are often used by migrants to gain entry into the U.S. and disappear into the country as their claims are adjudicated.
“There is no agreement of any sort between the incoming Mexican government and the U.S. government,” future Interior Minister Olga Sanchez said in a statement.
Hours earlier, The Washington Post quoted her as saying that the incoming administration of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador had agreed to allow migrants to stay in Mexico as a “short-term solution” while the U.S. considered their applications for asylum. Lopez Obrador will take office on Dec. 1.
The Washington Post reported Saturday that the Trump administration has won support from the Mexican president-elect’s team for a plan dubbed “Remain in Mexico.”
The newspaper also quoted Sanchez as saying: “For now, we have agreed to this policy of Remain in Mexico.” Sanchez did not explain in the statement why The Washington Post had quoted her as saying there had been an agreement.
Early Sunday, Trump wrote on Twitter that it would be “very SMART” for Mexico to “stop the Caravans long before they get to our Southern Border” to avoid future logistics challenges at the border.
There were signs last week that the Mexican government has received that message. Mexican immigration agents on Wednesday detained almost all of the Central American migrants on a fourth caravan that recently entered Mexico seeking to reach the U.S., with Mexico’s National Immigration Institute saying 213 migrants were detained and taken to a processing center. Those found to lack proper documents may face repatriation to their home countries.
Other administration officials sounded notes of optimism despite the apparent confusion on how to handle the migrants.
“President Trump has developed a strong relationship with the incoming [Lopez] Obrador administration, and we look forward to working with them on a wide range of issues,” White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said over the weekend.
Approximately 5,000 Central American migrants have arrived in recent days to Tijuana, just south of California, after making their way through Mexico via caravan. But agents at the San Diego port of entry process fewer than 100 claims per day.
On Friday, the mayor of Tijuana declared a humanitarian crisis in his border city of 1.6 million people, saying he was asking the United Nations for aid to deal with the approximately 5,000 Central American migrants, most of whom were camped out inside a sports complex.
The comments by Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum came as city officials and volunteers worked together to assist the 4,976 men, women and children who had arrived after more than a month on the road.
Hundreds of Tijuana residents have protested their arrival, complaining that recent caravans forced their way into Mexico from Guatemala.
Trump threatened Thursday, and again on Saturday, to shut down the border crossing entirely if his administration determines that Mexico has lost “control” of the situation in Tijuana.
Stephanie Leutert, director of the Mexico Security Initiative at the University of Texas at Austin, described the Remain in Mexico plan as a strategy to take away the ability of migrants to live and work in the U.S. while cases are processed.
“The hope is that asylum seekers will not want to live in [Mexico] for months/years and won’t come,” Leutert wrote on Twitter.
She added: “The big question is why would Mexico agree to this? … Mexico has its own migratory enforcement interests and the various caravans have been a huge headache.”
U.S. officials have said for months that they were working with Mexico on possible proposals. One variation, called “Safe Third,” would have denied asylum claims on the grounds that asylum seekers had found haven in Mexico. President Enrique Pena Nieto offered thousands of Central Americans asylum on Oct. 26 if they agreed to remain in southern Mexico. Close to 3,000 migrants took Mexico up on the offer.
Sanchez said Saturday that the next government does not plan for Mexico to become a “Safe Third” country.
Migrants at the Southern Border will not be allowed into the United States until their claims are individually approved in court. We only will allow those who come into our Country legally. Other than that our very strong policy is Catch and Detain. No “Releasing” into the U.S…
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 24, 2018
Julieta Vences, a congresswoman with Lopez Obrador’s Morena party who is also president of Mexico’s congressional migrant affairs commission, told the AP that incoming Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard has been discussing with U.S. officials how to handle a deluge of asylum claims at the border.
“They’re going to have to open the borders (for the migrants) to put in the request,” Vences said. “They will also give us dates, on what terms they will receive the (asylum) requests and in the case that they are not beneficiaries of this status, they will have to return here,” Vences said.
She said Mexico needs to examine how to accommodate the migrants without angering locals.
