TAMPA (WFLA) – A Florida 20-year-old with a lot on her shoulders finally had some of the weight lifted when local anonymous donors surprised her with a brand new car.

Samantha Rodriguez, of Orange County, has been raising her five younger siblings between the ages 5 and 16 ever since their parents died.

Rodriguez said in a press conference with the sheriff’s office  “You don’t know how much this means to me, doing everything on my own is so hard but i’m glad to have people like you guys in my life.”
