Derrick Taylor works at a UPS centre five miles from his home, where he loads and unloads vans with packages. And he starts work at 4am.

Oh, and he had to walk to work and back.

The 19-year-has been working since he was 14 to pay the bills and look after his sick mother, according to the Daily Mail.

Taylor says he was too proud to ask for lifts from his co-workers.

Taylor had a driving license, but couldn't afford a car.

That was, until his co-workers clubbed together and bought one for him.

As he was presented the car, his colleague said he wanted Taylor to know everyone appreciated his “hard work”.

Taylor told the Mail:

I was overwhelmed with joy.

No one had ever done anything like that for me so it made me cry and I'm not really the type to show my emotions
