A viral video that's captured hearts and laughs around the net shows a young woman doing a happy dance after getting hired by a job.
Dakara Spence, who works at The Spot Bar and Grill in Decatur, Georgia, posted footage of Jones’ dance.
“So I just hired this young girl, and this was her response," the caption read.
According to Atlanta’s CBS 46, Kayallah Jones has been
homeless for two years. Because of the pandemic, she couldn’t find steady work. Jones’ luck changed when she walked into the restaurant on Sept. 29.

Spence, the restaurant manager, told the news channel that she “saw something special” in the young woman.
“She had a great energy. I felt it as soon as she walked in; she seemed really positive,” she said.
The interview went well, and Spence hired her.
She called to tell Jones the good news and then informed her that she saw her going in in the parking lot.
“I called her phone, and I said I’m going to hire you, and I seen your happy dance so you can continue dancing," said Dakara. "She was just screaming through the phone, and it was just a beautiful moment for me.”
Jones will work as a server at the newly opened restaurant. An emotional Jones told CBS 46 how much the job and Spence’s kindness meant to her.
“Ms. Dakara didn’t know, but I was going through so much and at that point when she gave me this chance and this opportunity. I was elated, excited and so overwhelmed to the point where no one understood how happy and accomplished I felt at that moment,” said Jones.
People via Instagram wished the woman well, shared encouraging words with her, and some people even offered to send her money to help her get on her feet.
One woman asked Spence for her cash app to send her money to get to and from the job.
The viral video, which has garnered over 4 million views so far, just goes to show that a little kindness goes a long way — and Jones has some killer moves, which she even broke down for the news station.
