I don't know her name but I heard this elderly man tell her his hands don't work too good. He was also on oxygen and struggling to breathe. ???? Without hesitation, she took his plate and began...

Since then, the video has been shared over 46,000 times.  The city of LaMarque, Texas proclaimed Thursday to be "Evoni "Nini" Williams Day".  And Texas Southern University has offered her at $16,000 scholarship.

Williams said "that's just me" and that her act of kindness "came from the heart".
