The woman, Leanna E., posted a photo of herself and the student on Twitter Wednesday, along with a quote saying "Everyone makes mistakes. If you can't forgive others, don't expect others to forgive you."

"A week ago I was the victim of a racial slur that was shared around the world," she wrote. "Today, I chose forgiveness & feel stronger because of it."
