Esteban Barriga is a 17-year-old kid with autism, though his t-shirt lets you know he’s more, he’s awetistic.

Barriga told his mom that he was feeling lonely at school and didn’t want to attend his senior prom. But he eventually came around to the idea, and decided his real dream is to take Ellen DeGeneres as his date.

With the help of his family and some friends, he created this awesome video, detailing why Ellen should go to prom with him. Including a list of reasons his classmates came up with.

“As he prepares to transition to adulthood he teaches us a very important lesson,” his mom writes in the description of the YouTube video, ”that having a disability does not stop you from dreaming.”

Help him out using the hashtag #EllenTakeMeToProm. We wish you luck Esteban!
