Yet Lourdes Medrano, a senior at Alvarez High School in Salinas, California, touched the hearts of thousands by tweeting a picture of her and her father. He was unable to see her off on the actual day of prom because he was working, so she got ready again and took pictures with her dad so he wouldn't be upset.
"My dad works 24/7, and I owe him a lot. I wanted to make sure we got a picture together," Medrano told Fresh U via Twitter DMs. She pulled this off, and it was a complete surprise to her dad.
People on Twitter found it very adorable.
"My dad was happy himself, although his face may not really show it," Medrano added.
Her heart-warming tweet has received over 55,000 retweets and 392,000 likes. Medrano didn't expect the attention she has received since tweeting the photo.
"I would have never thought it would go viral," she said. "I simply posted it as any other picture I would."
Looks like she's taking home the "Daughter of the Year" crown this prom season.
