According to a post by Pinecrest Guest Home, DeShawonte Cooley drove her 4-wheeler a distance of over 25 miles in the freezing cold to make it to work.

"DeShawonte Cooley came to work for her shift today. You may think that's not a big deal. However, this tough lady rode her 4 wheeler in the freezing cold from Byram to Hazelhurst in this icy weather," the nursing home shared.

"She loves and cares about her residents. We appreciate you, DeShawonte!!!!"

Mississippi is currently experiencing power outtages, water lines are bursting, and police have advised the general public not to drive unless absolutely necessary.

"With this type of dedication you should go a long way young lady. Many employers would be glad to have you on there staff," one user commented on the post.

Cooley's mother also commented on the post, saying "One PROUD mom 😍💯💋🤞💪❤ be safe baby..... WE LOVE U DESHAWONTE."
