Homeless high school student in Houston gifted a brand new car by Charlie ...

A homeless high school student has been gifted a car by a complete stranger - who jumped out of a dumpster to surprise her with the gift. 

Sionna Brenn, 19, moved to the US from Ethiopia when she was nine, and was placed in an abusive foster home. She managed to leave the family and moved to Houston, but was declared homeless by the state. 

The teenager is an honor student, and works 35 hours a week at Starbucks to support herself. She received a scholarship to the University of Texas - but had no way to get there, Fox reported.

Moving footage of the surprise shows Sionna bringing trash out to the dumpsters, and falling to the ground when she is confronted by cameras, the new car, and Good Samaritan Charlie Jabaley.
