Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- Although the Cinderella Project makes every girl feel like a princess on her prom day, there's one very special girl that will be made the belle of the ball.

"I'm very positive, happy person. I like to look at the higher things in life," Jazmine Thompson said.

Thompson, a Spring Valley High School senior,  may not have evil stepsisters or scrub the floor all day, but she's had her share of hardships.

Her home burned down just two weeks ago.

"I had to go outside the window onto the roof," she said. "For the most part everything was gone."

No one was injured in the fire, and all was well again....until something else was taken from her. 

"More bad things keep happening, someone stole my truck," Jazmine said.

Jazmine's mother, Brenda Thompson, brought her to the Cinderella Project Boutique in hopes to save some money. 

"When I was younger, five-years-old, my house actually burned down so when I heard her story I was like, 'Oh my God I know how that feels to lose everything,'" Hudson said. "So I just said I have to do something.

And with Hudson's help, Jazmine starts her own Cinderella story. 

"I'm usually not emotional but just everything that's happening and everyone helping me so much it just makes me cry because I'm so thankful for everyone," Jazmine said.

Now Jazmine just needs a pair of glass slippers and her Prince Charming. News19 will keep you updated on Jazmine and Sergio's progress to make her dream dress.
