With prom season under way, WNYC sought out seniors with a prom story to tell. We first met Tiffanie Galan, the president of the student council at Life Academy High School for Film and Music in Gravesend, Brooklyn, in early spring. She and her boyfriend were a witty and fun pair, excited about the prom. But the semester unfolded in an unexpected way, and their relationship ended. Still, Tiffanie said, she wasn’t going to let the breakup stop her from enjoying her senior prom.
