Yesterday during President Obama’s trip to Flint, Michigan, he met the darling 8-year-old girl who brought him there.
Amariyanna Copeny, also know at Little Miss Flint after winning a beauty pageant there, wrote to Obama asking him to visit to lift the spirits of the area’s residents after dealing with the water crisis there. President Obama granted her request and made time to thank her in person for her letter.
Check out their adorable meeting posted by the White House yesterday.
