“My main goal is to make her prom as special as possible.”
Shaedon has been friends with his date, Carlie, for many years because he is best friends with her brother, Carlie's mom, Angie Wittman, told BuzzFeed News.
Carlie, who has Down syndrome, was dying to go to the dance because her brother, Carson, and his girlfriend were going, her mom said.
However, she said she told her daughter she could only go if she was asked, since she is a freshman.
“She was sad about it because Carson was going and she wasn't,” she said.
Little did Carlie know, Shaedon had been talking for a while about taking Carlie to prom with Carson and his date. After getting permission from her parents, he came up with a promposal themed around her favorite snack: Doritos.
“In order to make her prom as special as possible, I decided to go all out from the beginning,” he told BuzzFeed News. “I made the shirt myself and made the saying myself as well. I decided on the Doritos theme because I have known her for seven years and there has not been a day that I have not seen her eat Doritos. She absolutely loves them.”
Carlie's mom agreed that the Doritos theme was the right choice.
“Doritos are her favorite snack… She could eat them for meals,” she said.
