This Teen Asked A Student With A Disability To Prom In The Most Amazing Way
High schoolers normally suck, but this story is arguably the most heartwarming thing to happen on the Internet this week.
Ben Davis, 16, assumed he would attend a normal pep rally at Everett High School on Friday when he got the surprise of a lifetime: an epic "promposal" from fellow student Vee Nguyen.

Nguyen told the Detroit Free Press the two became friends while she was working with a school program for students with special needs.
She also told reporters she asked Ben to prom at a pep rally because she wanted it to be a public statement and hopes her promposal serves as inspiration to fellow classmates. She said,

Way to not be a typical high school teen, Vee!
