“Prom is supposed to be a good experience and an amazing memory,” Sabrina says. “It’s okay to not have a date, especially if you’re going with a group of people. (For the record, my dream date would be Lin-Manuel Miranda or Emilia Clarke.)”
“When it comes to parties, I don’t think, I’m going to meet boys, or I need to bring a boy. For me, it’s more like, This is going to be a really fun party and I’m going to get dressed up and feel special — and who knows what could happen?”
As for what she’d like to wear to prom, Sabrina says:
“My dream prom dress would be like Taylor Swift‘s gown from the ‘Love Story‘ music video — something that is either very lacy or has a lot of texture to it and looks like it’s from a fairy tale,” she says. ” In general, I like to wear longer dresses because I’m short, so I can put on a pair of heels underneath and people are like, ‘Did you grow?'”
While she hasn’t had a chance to go to a prom yet, Sabrina already knows how she’ll celebrate after the big dance:
“I’ll go out for pizza or to In-N-Out Burger with my friends,” she says. “I’m always hungry, but especially after a long night of dancing. At that point, I’m just like, ‘Screw it — I’ll have the milkshake!'”
