If you made it through high school, you probably understand how bold it is to ask someone to dance wildly for you if you have never done it before and are not well-known.

High school sophomore Dakota Nelton, of Gray, Louisiana, worked up the courage to ask his friend to the school’s homecoming dance. The occasion was significant for him because he had never done so and required a lot of bravery.

Even so, she turned it down. She can do as she pleases, no? It’s unacceptable that it happened in front of their classmates, who laughed and teased Dakota for getting the rejection. They trampled all over his homemade poster, which he had used to make his proposal, which made things worse.

In a desperate attempt for the ground to give way and swallow him whole, Dakota backed away from the students. He ran away to a roar of laughter and jeers, a scene straight out of a child’s worst nightmare.

 Before the homecoming dance, the teenager was laughed at and rejected; days later, he sees 13 girls in front of him.

To WGNO New Orleans, he recalled the challenging circumstance and said, “It was a pretty tough moment standing in a small circle with that one shake of the head, and you just got to find your way out of that circle. ”.

When he thought things couldn’t possibly get worse, it turned out that the entire incident had been recorded on camera. After being uploaded to Facebook, the video saw hundreds of views. From every corner of the US, people could see Dakota being made fun of for only trying to go on a date.

A few days later, Dakota showed up at the school, having no idea that he would soon be involved in an event that would go down in history.

He was stopped as he moved down the hallway by a group of at least 13 girls, each of whom was holding a sign.

It turned out that the girls had banded together to persuade Dakota that he was worthy, loved, and that he had no reason to doubt himself. He was going to be welcomed to join them, they planned!

“I felt like one of the popular kids in school, which I’m not,” Dakota continued with a smile. ”.
