Virginia McLaurin says she has been waiting all her life to see an African-American in the White House. So, when she finally got a chance to meet President Obama, the 106-year-old woman was super excited.
In a video posted by the White House Sunday night, you can see just how excited she is at the opportunity.
According to reports, back in 2014 Virginia McLaurin began a social media campaign to meet the Obamas. She filmed a YouTube video in which she explained, “I didn’t think I’d ever live to see a colored president. I am so happy. I pray for you every day of my life.” The YouTube video was accompanied by a White House petition and a Facebook page.
We’re glad she finally got to meet them.
