“She made my day more than I made hers,” Kwani told

The senior at Enloe High School said she and her date were taking photos at the Raleigh Rose Garden when she noticed a little girl, who later said her name was Emory, and her dad approach her with wide eyes.

Her dad then told Kwani, “She wanted to see the princess.”

“I felt amazing,” Kwani said. “I’ve never been mistaken for a princess before. It just made my whole night going to prom. I had so much confidence — a little girl thought I was a princess! It made my entire day.”
