“Hey!”

“How are you?”

“I’m fine.”

She’s waited over a century to see a black president in office, so how else do you celebrate meeting Obama then to dance?

“She’s dancing. C’mon! So what’s the secret to still dancing at 106?”

And that’s exactly what 106-year-old Virginia McLaurin did. So excited was the South Carolina native to meet the US president and first lady, that she couldn’t help but bust out some moves. Having lived through segregation and the civil rights movement, Virginia expressed her amazement and gratitude at meeting Obama.

“I tell you, I am so happy.”

“We are happy to have you.”

“A black president!”

“Look at him.”

“Yay!”

Mrs McLaurin filed a White House petition in 2014, saying she’d love to meet Obama and his family, and her request was heard. As part of Black History Month, the White House had been hosting events to celebrate African Americans past and present who shaped the US.

And after her hundred-year wait, Virginia made sure she made an effort for her memorable trip to the White House.

“Look at those nails! Woo-hoo!”

Difficult words: native (a local citizen), bust out (to do something special), segregation (the separation of black and white people in the USA), gratitude (being thankful), file (to submit, to send, to put in), a petition (request), make an effort (to try hard).
