Sullivan Wood of Charleston, S.C., got the surprise of her life on Saturday when her Halloween costume earned her the opportunity to meet her idol. The 4-year-old dressed up as Hillary Clinton and went with her family to Clinton’s rally in Charleston. When campaign aides saw Wood’s outfit, she was brought backstage for an introduction to none other than the former Secretary of State herself, according to Buzzfeed News.

“Sullivan thinks she’ll be the next female President after Hillary Clinton,” mom Jennifer Jones-Wood told Buzzfeed News. “She loves her. We campaign together for Hillary and she even has a poster of her above her bed.”

Jones-Wood posted a video of the adorable encounter to her Facebook page.

“Hillary was tickled pink and Sullivan was just so excited. I don’t think she understands the magnitude of this because she’s 4.”
