A woman who has lived for 106 years thought she would never live to see a day that she would walk into the White House, but she did—and she not only walked up to President Obama and First Lady, she sauntered and danced with them both.
Virginia McLaurin came to Washington, D.C. to celebrate Black History Month, after having witnessed more than a century of it herself.
The spirited centenarian couldn’t keep still when she met Barack and Michelle Obama, booming a loud hello and almost running across the room to celebrate the moment.
While the President worried about her falling down, Michelle Obama beamed, “I want to be like you when I grow up.”
