Atlantic City Girl Meets President Obama: ‘See Ya Sparkle!'

A New Jersey girl had a once in a lifetime thrill this week when she went to the White House to meet President Barack Obama and even had a chance to sit in his chair in the Oval Office.

"I'm trying to be a community organizer," Sparkle Prevard, of Atlantic City, told Obama.

Prevard visited Washington D.C. with several other young women who were all named Youth of the Year winners.

The South Jersey teen, who graduated from Atlantic City High School, plans to attend Richard Stockton State College in the fall, according to the Boys &  Girls Club in New Jersey's website.

Catch their meeting in the West Wing Week: 3/20/2015 video below.
