Moment Of Awe: Little Girl Is Captivated By Michelle Obama's Portrait
In February 2018, the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery revealed the official portraits of former POTUS and FLOTUS, Barack and Michelle Obama. It did cause mixed reactions, with some people admiring the artwork, and others believing it was not presidential. But all these opinions and comments pale in comparison with the reaction of this cute 2-year-old girl.
Moment of admiration
Jessica Curry took her daughter to the gallery to show her some pieces of art and take a picture with them. When little Parker saw the portrait of the former first lady, she was simply stunned. The mom tried to get her to turn around, but it was all in vain.
Ben Hines, who also attended the gallery, spotted the child staring at Michelle Obama, and he could not help but take a pic of her. When he shared it on Facebook, it’s no wonder it went viral. Michelle also got to see the snap, responding with smiley and heart-eyed emojis.

Little girl genuinely thinks Obama is a queen, and she wants to be like her in the future. Her sweetest reaction didn’t leave people indifferent as they rushed to Twitter and Instagram to share their thoughts.
Here are some of the reactions
"I'm also thinking of all the young people...who will see an image of someone who looks like them hanging on the wall in this great American institution. I know the impact that will have on their lives, b/c I was one of those girl." - Michelle Obama, 2/12/18

This little girl's powerful reaction is why we march. It's why we fight. It's why, no matter how tired we may become, we keep pressing forward. Because our actions today will transcend generations. https://t.co/aLn8imFpWw

We wonder, how did Parker react to Barack’s portrait?
