106-Year-Old's Reaction To Meeting Barack And Michelle Obama Is Full Of Life

This woman is rocking it!

Virginia McLaurin can outdance most of us.

The 106-year-old woman from Washington, D.C. was full of excitement when she met President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama for the first time over the weekend. With her hands up in the air and face full of joy, McLaurin says it was an honour to meet the Obamas.

“A black president. A black wife. And I’m here to celebrate black history. That’s what I’m here for,” she said.

In 2014, McLaurin started a petition to meet the first black president. And during Black History Month, the White House invited the centenarian to help make her dreams come true.

While we can't get over McLaurin's liveliness, the Obamas have the perfect response as well.
