On Wednesday Michelle Obama responded to the project, giving the 3rd grader an "A+."

This just made my day. I may not be a 3rd grade teacher, but this gets an A+ in my book! https://t.co/wBTzbyG8zr

People loved that Michelle Obama responded to the little girl and her poster. One person said that the teacher now has to give her the exact same, great grade.

@MichelleObama The teacher has to give her an A+ now.

Someone else suspected that mini-Michelle might be pretty excited about having heard from Michelle herself.

@MichelleObama You just made this girlโ€™s life! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

"Watch this child," one person instructed about the 9-year-old. "She's going places."

@MichelleObama Watch this child. Sheโ€™s going places.

Mini-Michelle, aka Alexandra, was stunned by Obama's response, Dow told BuzzFeed News.

"Alexandra was shocked and a bit overwhelmed," she said. "She got really teary-eyed and said she could not believe the First Lady would write to her. She was so happy and said she cannot wait to tell her friends and teacher tomorrow at school."
