Couple leaves waitress $400 tip, and another $10,000 to pay off her student loans

A Hawaiian waitress, 21 year old Cayla Chandara who waits tables at two different restaurants, pulling double shifts just to make ends meet, got the gift of a lifetime from a very generous couple.
While working last week, at the Noi Thai Cuisine, she struck a conversation with a couple from Australia who asked her why she moved to Hawaii.

She told them she  moved to Waikiki, Hawaii, from Santa Rosa, California, for College, telling them how she was working two jobs; one at the Waikiki hotspot Noi Thai Cuisine, and the other at the Cheesecake Factory.

She told them that she had dropped out of college due to heavy student loans and the high cost of living in the state, adding that she was hoping to save up enough money so she could return to school one day.
She said:
“They asked me where I was from, and I told them I moved here for school, but I was kind of in a little bit of debt and I couldn’t go back to school because I couldn’t afford it and the cost of living here,”
The waitress thought the customers  were just being polite by asking her questions. But as she cleared their table and collected their $200 tab at the end of the night, she got the shock of her life. They had left her a tip of $400 which was double their bill.
“I was then at a loss for words and all I wanted to do was hug them,” Chandara told CBS News.
Chandara recalled where the couple said they were staying, and decided she would go by there after her shift to thank them properly.
“I genuinely wanted to say thank you,” Chandara said. “I sent a thank you letter saying how much it meant to me.”
She left it at the hotel’s front desk and left, never expecting to see the tourists again.

The next night, the couple returned to the restaurant. and told Chandara they would like to give her $10,000 to pay off her student loans and to contribute to her continuing her college education.

Chandara was at a loss for words.
“I initially told them I couldn’t take that offer, but they insisted that it would be just as great for them to do it for me,” Chandara said.
“I was like, ‘No way, you don’t have to do that for me. I just wanted to say thank you,'” Chandara said.
“I still don’t feel like it’s real. I want to run around in the streets.”
Chandara told the generous tourists, who wish to remain anonymous, that she will go back to school in the fall to study Liberal Arts and Business. She asked how she could ever repay them.
“They told me the best way to thank them is to be my best possible self, dream big and strive for my goals,” Chandara said.
“I want to make them proud. I will take this opportunity with an open heart and be a better person that I can be every day,” Chandara said.

Osondu that's not totally true. Don't put the whole black race in one basket. There are good ones out there but if you don't believe it, you won't see it.
