A 106-year-old volunteer is melting hearts around the world as a video of her meeting US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle takes the internet by storm.

Virginia McLaurin has always dreamed of visiting the White House, but never thought she’d have the chance.

After being honoured for amazing work as a volunteer for students with severe mental and physical disabilities, Virginia was given the chance to fulfil her dream with a special meeting with Barack and Michelle.

Virginia, who lived through years of racial oppression and the civil rights era, said she never thought she’d live to see a black president in the White House – let alone get to dance with him!

Take a look at Virginia’s dance moves below and tell us if it makes you smile!

Did this video put a smile on your face? Do you hope to be as lively as Virginia when you get older?
