I’m all dressed in my dress for my senior prom and I’m getting a ride in my Mother’s car so she can drop me off at my friend’s house to take pictures. My house is on a busy street and as I’m walking with my 8-year-old brother to my Mom’s car, I hear a car that’s banging music loudly out of it’s car.
I get worried, as I had experienced street harassment before. The man in the car sees me and he screams, “Hey Caramel” multiple times as I try to ignore him. My 8-year-old brother is beyond confused and tells me the man is trying to talk to me. I tell my brother not to turn around or give him attention. When the car finally drives away, I feel disgusting on my special day. The fact the street harasser does it in front of my brother, got me heated. I tried my best to explain the situation to my brother, who I hope understands.
