Kaylin Morton has always wanted her prom to be like the tale of Cinderella, where she is the belle of the ball.

When it comes to prom, I’m like a little girl with dreams of being one of those special princesses on Disney. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve looked forward to two events the most: my prom and my wedding. These are so significant to me because they are my nights to be in the spotlight. For these special occasions, I care about fun and excitement — so ultimately the cost isn’t a main factor.
I know getting a one-of-a-kind dress for prom is more expensive, but, this has always been my dream. The tale of Cinderella isn’t quite my story, but, I’ve always wanted to be the belle of the ball.
Ok, I realize I may sound snobby to some, but I’m not like this every day. Prom is a magical night that girls think about for years. We see movies where glamorous young ladies enjoy the evening with their elegant friends. For one night, what’s wrong with that? Nothing.
For prom, I didn’t want to look average. I searched the internet for the latest fashions and tried to imagine myself in each outfit — without looking at the price.
I wanted my fairytale to be written where at the stroke of midnight I was the one in everyone’s last memory.
