This Texas Homecoming Queen Restored Faith In Humankind By Sharing Her Crown With A Friend Who Was Bullied!

| Filed under: InspirationBullyingAwwwwwPageantryHeartwarmingViral: Kids

The story of how Lillian Skinner became homecoming queen will melt your heart!

For some girls, being named your school's homecoming queen is a dream come true. But these two girls at Grand Prairie High School in north Texas decided to take their special moment to help a friend in need!

17-year-old Lillian Skinner has been described by her peers as an "amazing girl" and one of the nicest people you'll ever meet, but that didn't stop a few of her classmates from pulling a nasty prank on her by telling her she had been nominated for homecoming queen when she actually wasn't.

Luckily, Lillian's friends Anahi Alvarez and Naomi Martinez actually were nominated for the prestigious honor, and they came up with a plan to help raise her spirits:

"We promised each other and we were like, 'No matter what, no backing down. If one of us wins, we're giving Lillian the crown.'"

Well Anahi ended up being named homecoming queen, and she stuck to her word as she immediately turned the crown over to Lillian for the whole school to see!

The heartwarming story has gotten a TON of attention, and Lillian says she's STILL in disbelief over the whole thing:

"I was like, 'Wow, really? Like, wow! Like, is this a dream or something?'"

It's so amazing to see people helping others simply out of the kindness of their hearts, and we think it's safe to say that all three of these ladies are queens in our book!

    Nice story..we need to be more kind to others…enough bullying, tearing people down and shaming women..enough!

    The students that set her up because she's not conventionally attractive should be brought up on harassment charges. They set out to publicly humiliate a child and they should be held accountable for making her think she was nominated. That's fraud, they're rude little pigs and getting away with the set up isn't going to make them better people.

    Re: Tricia – That's a little OTT don't you think. I'm not saying it was OK, but they're children themselves and they probably said something stupid in jest. Silly, yes, punishable by death, no. She was a bit naive to believe what people say… but she has friends that obviously care about her and they did a nice thing.

    Let's not get out the hangman's noose just yet though aye.

    Re: M to the H – It remains to hope that you or one of your children suffer from offensive and repetitive bullying, that way, perhaps you will really understand of what you were talking about. Because Honey, the extent of the harms goes beyond the simple offensive word.
