A 106-year-old woman got her wish to meet the Obamas at the White House.

A social media campaign paid off for Virginia McLaurin.

McLaurin, who was born in 1909, campaigned on YouTube and started a White House petition to meet the president.

She finally got to meet the president and first lady last week at the White House.

The White House posted video of the visit on Twitter on Sunday.

Through all the dance moves and her priceless reaction, she said she was just happy to be there.

"I thought I would never live to get in the White House, and I tell you, I am so happy!" McLaurin added.

McLaurin described the visit as part of her own Black History Month celebration.
