March 30, 2016 Updated: March 31, 2016

In February, a video of first-grade Kameria crying over the fact that president Obama would soon leave office became a viral hit on the web. 

Word of the video eventually traveled to the president, who invited Kameria to the White House for the Easter Egg Roll. 

There, Kameria gave president Obama a letter asking him not to leave office, and was greeted with a hug from the president. 


“I don’t want you to leave the White House. I want to meet you before you leave the White House.” —First grader Kameria in her letter to President Obama. This week, her wish came true.
