A dateless teen took a Michael B. Jordan cutout to prom and his response was awesome.

Audeva Ageman was all set to go her prom until her long-distance boyfriend cancelled last-minute. There was no way she was going to miss her big night, but she needed a date.

So the 17-year-old created a life-size cardboard cutout of actor Michael B. Jordan to escort her to the prom.

Jordan is best known for his roles in “Creed” and “Black Panther.”


“After not being able to get a prom date from procrastinating and waiting til the last minute, i spent 3 hours making my sexy prom date,” Audeva said on Twitter in April.

After Ageman’s photos with the cardboard Jordan went viral, he commented on her Instagram post.

Ageman couldn’t believe that she caught the attention of her celebrity crush.

The producers of Jordan’s upcoming film, “Creed 2,” reached out to Ageman on Twitter and asked if she’d like to be part of “a special project for super fans.”

The “Creed 2” team arranged for Ageman to visit the film set, but told her that Jordan wouldn't be on set that day.

But that was just to set up the surprise.

While on the set, Jordan snuck up behind Ageman and gave her a huge hug.

“They picked me up from my house and a 2 hour drive later and I’m being interviewed next thing I know I’m screaming because Michael B Jordan was standing right behind me the whole time,” Ageman told Huffington Post.

True

If the past year has taught us nothing else, it's that sending love out into the world through selfless acts of kindness can have a positive ripple effect on people and communities. People all over the United States seemed to have gotten the message — 71% of those surveyed by the World Giving Index helped a stranger in need in 2020. A nonprofit survey found 90% helped others by running errands, calling, texting and sending care packages. Many people needed a boost last year in one way or another and obliging good neighbors heeded the call over and over again — and continue to make a positive impact through their actions in this new year.

Upworthy and P&G Good Everyday wanted to help keep kindness going strong, so they partnered up to create the Lead with Love Fund. The fund awards do-gooders in communities around the country with grants to help them continue on with their unique missions. Hundreds of nominations came pouring in and five winners were selected based on three criteria: the impact of action, uniqueness, and "Upworthy-ness" of their story.

Here's a look at the five winners:

Edith Ornelas, co-creator of Mariposas Collective in Memphis, Tenn.

Edith Ornelas has a deep-rooted connection to the asylum-seeking immigrant families she brings food and supplies to families in Memphis, Tenn. She was born in Jalisco, Mexico, and immigrated to the United States when she was 7 years old with her parents and sister. Edith grew up in Chicago, then moved to Memphis in 2016, where she quickly realized how few community programs existed for immigrants. Two years later, she helped create Mariposas Collective, which initially aimed to help families who had just been released from detention centers and were seeking asylum. The collective started out small but has since grown to approximately 400 volunteers.
