Young Man Walks 10 Miles In Snow and Cold For Job Interview To Support Siblings After Their Mom Dies

An inspiring story of a young man who sets out on a 10 mile hike in the snow and cold for a job interview and gets hired by the man who gives him a lift.

18 year old Jhaqueil Reagan set out on a 10 mile hike across Indianapolis in the cold and snow, for a job interview. Art Bouvier, a local restaurant owner to whom he had asked directions, saw him trudging on the side of the road, and offered him a lift.

Along the way, Jhaqueil explained that he was going to a job interview at a local Dairy Queen, that he dropped out of school to support his brothers and sisters after his mother died two years ago, and didn’t have money for bus fare.

Hearing his story, and touched by his old-fashioned values and fortitude — Art hires him for his restaurant, Papa Roux.
