Michelle Obama referred to as the forever first lady has been channeled by many young girls even after she left office five years ago. Five-year-old Rosie White is the newest person who has impersonated her role model, Mrs. Obama, listing many of her accomplishments and finishing it off with one of her most popular quotes.

Kenya White, Rosie’s mother, filmed her daughter and told news outlets that impersonating characters at home was a family hobby. She said the former first lady is one of Rosie’s best impersonations, Yahoo News reports.

“It’s something we do as a household hobby as we love to create. This video was super fun to make because Rosie loves to do a model walk,” said White.

In the video which went viral after being shared on Storyful, the five-year-old diva is heard saying, “I am a role model for women’s healthy families, attorney, and an author,” oozing confidence that comes with the person she is mimicking.

“I am also a fashion icon. When someone is mean, cruel, or acts like a bully, we don’t stoop to their level, no. Our motto is, when they go low, we go high,” Rosie ended with the quote from Michelle Obama’s 2016 convention speech addressing claims her husband, Barack was not an American.

Many people look up to the former Flotus and aspire to be like her even before the release of her New York Times Bestselling memoir, Becoming and its young reader’s version. The young reader’s version is intended for readers aged 10 and upwards. The multimillion-selling memoir will still present the truth as it is and not in a “sugarcoated” manner because of the target audience, USA Today reported.

Michelle Obama also released a self-help journal, ‘Becoming: A Guided Journal for Discovering Your Voice.’  The journal has been described as “an intimate and inspiring introduction” by the former First Lady, and also has over “150 inspiring questions and quotes to help you discover – and rediscover – your story.”

These questions and quotes “resonate with key themes in Mrs. Obama’s memoir and that is designed to help readers reflect on their personal and family history, their goals, challenges, and dreams, what moves them and brings them hope, and what future they imagine for themselves and their community,” according to publisher Penguin Random House.

Young Detroit native Rosie has also been doing some work on her own as well to inspire others. This year’s Women’s History month, she dressed up as notable Black women in short clips with impersonations of civil rights icon Rosa Parks, Aretha Franklin, Cecily Tyson, Serena Williams and Stacey Abrams. Her aim was to inspire young girls to go for gold.

For an interview with GMA, Rosie dressed up as Tina Turner with a stellar impersonation of the Rock and Roll star.
