We received this post from a teenager who is a little person:
Hello MediaTakeOut! My name is Leibrynn Russell. I recently went to the McKeesport Prom, Thursday. I had decided to go by myself. Not necessarily because I wanted to, but no one wanted to go with me.
Yes!! Literally No One! Though since it was my Senior Year.... my parents urged me to go. So you know what I did? I went by myself, while everyone had someone to the right or left of them, I rode solo!
I was nervous, but I held my head high and strutted my stuff at promenade.
I hope that my story will encourage others to be confident and independent!
You look GORGEOUS Leibrynn
