Kallayah was thrilled to just have an interview, and went in with her same glowing prescence. The hiring manager DaKara Spence was immediately intrigued by Kallayah’s positive energy and knew there was something special about her. Dakara even told CBS,
“She had a great energy I felt it as soon as she walked in she seemed really positive,”

Kallayah was ready for a brand new start and DaKara could tell that about her. Without a doubt, the interview was a success and DaKara let Kallayah know she should be hearing from her in couple of days.
She never would have guessed how walking out of those doors would change her life forever…
Kallayah was confident about the interview and walked out of those doors elated. But Kallayah didn’t just walk on out to the car… she paused, looked around to see if anyone was watching and did an excited dance right in the parking lot!
However, she had no idea that the security cameras caught her in the act!
DaKara had watched her walk out on the surveilance video and couldn’t help but smile.
DaKarra told CBS,
““I called her phone and I said ‘I’m going to hire you’ and ‘I seen your happy dance so you can continue dancing’,”
“She was just screaming through the phone and it was just a beautiful moment for me.”
DaKara posted the adorable dancing video onto her Instagram and wrote,
‘So I just hired this young girl and this was her response’
