Dascha Polanco to Attend Prom with Hometown High School Student

Dascha Polanco (Dayanara Diaz) paid a surprise visit to Progress High School in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Friday, January 16 to stress to students the importance of education.

“Do not use excuses as a way not to accomplish the goals you have set and the dreams you may have. [. . .] Please know that there are choices in life and know that there are consequences to the choices you make.”

It was after Polanco’s assembly that a student asked her to prom, which she “was beyond delighted to accept,” since she had never attended or been invited to an annual dance.
