Such was the lesson learned by teenager Aniya Wolf when she attended her prom last week at Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg, Penn. Since she was a little kid, Wolf has preferred to dress in a more typically masculine way, favoring pants and sneakers over skirts and heels. “I’ve just always been like this, ever since I was little,” she told her local ABC news affiliate.
