A high school student in Franklin took prom to another level this year.

Tia’ Asia  Williams showed up to her high school prom in a customized life-size Barbie box.

Williams said she got the idea because her brother who recently died used to call her "Barbie," and she wanted to do something to remember him. Her family says that Tia’ Asia embodies the spirit of Barbie with her sweet and caring nature. She also teaches classes on her YouTube channel focused on makeup application and healthy beauty tips.

Williams says her video received over 3 million views in less than 24 hours, and although some people were extremely negative, it was a memory she will never forget. 

"My prom experience, it was amazing like… I didn’t know. It was going to come with all of this. I really shocked. It was just new, everything," Williams said.
