The 43-year old single mother was a hair stylist by day and an Uber driver by night.
Latonya Young told Channel 2’s Berndt Petersen that she picked up a passenger outside Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and during the ride they got to talking.
During this particular trip, Young shared a bit of her life story with the passenger.
A few days after that rideshare, Young told Petersen that she got a phone call from the school.
"And the message stated, 'You can register for classes now.' I was literally blown away. A stranger has never done that --- or done anything like that --- for me," Young said.
That stranger was Kevin Esch, the Uber passenger. A couple of weeks ago, he attended Young’s graduation from Georgia State.
