Daniel Rivas wanted to go to his high school’s homecoming dance. He was dead set on it, in fact. The only issue? There was no one who wanted to be his date. Daniel, who has Down syndrome, asked a girl accompany to him as a date, but unfortunately, he was turned down. And that’s when 10th grade student Kylie Fronius stepped in.
Kylie went out of her way to ensure that Daniel Rivas had a great homecoming. Despite Daniel’s Down syndrome, Kylie views him as someone who learns differently rather than someone with a disability and she always emphasizes this. Kylie resolved to ensure that Daniel could attend the homecoming dance like a typical high schooler.
Fox5 News Las Vegas did a segment on Kylie and Daniel after Kylie made a huge poster to ask Daniel to the dance. On the big night, the two high schoolers dressed up in a gown and tuxedo, had a meal with their dates, took a limo ride, and enjoyed a red carpet treatment all in the name of a great evening of dancing.
Daniel’s mom was touched by he kindness. On an interview with fox news, she states: “Someone took the time to take my son to homecoming words can’t describe what I’m feeling.”
