- A teenage girl couldn't find a date for prom
- She therefore took her Harvard acceptance letter
- Her tweet has gone viral, with many congratulating her
When high school student Priscilla Samey couldn't find a prom date, she didn't let that put her down, she went to prom with her Harvard University acceptance letter.
Priscilla, from Minnesota in the US, has been accepted to several Ivy League universities, including Columbia, Princeton, Yale, Cornell and Harvard.
On April 29, she shared her choice in a tweet with the caption: "Couldn't find a man to accept me for prom so I took a college that did."
In a subsequent interview, she said: "At first I was disappointed but going by myself allowed me to avoid all the competitiveness and expenses that usually go with prom."
Priscilla's tweet immediately went viral and has garnered more that 28,000 retweets and 125,000 likes so far.
