What an inspiration!
Rebecca Arellano, a senior at Patrick Henry High School in San Diego, California, was crowned homecoming king at her high school. And what's even cooler, her girlfriend was crowned homecoming queen.
Students cheered and chanted their names as the couple received their crowns.
The girls hadn't originally planned on running, but after getting support from their families, friends, and teachers, they decided to throw their names in the ring. And then, ended up winning!
A teacher told Rebeca:
"Today, school is a bit better because of you girls."
Aw, that's so amazing. What an inspiration these girls are. And it also confirms that with support from families, friends, and peers, people can change the world. Seriously.
So lovely! Congratulations, ladies!
Watch their story above.
