Thanks to Make A Wish foundation Anema, who lives in New York City, got a special invitation from the president himself that would make even the State Dinner Gatecrashers jealous.
Obama chatted with Jasmina about her favorite gave Jasmina a yo-yo and a box of M&M’s with the presidential seal on them and told his new pal, “You can write me anytime. I’ll get it.”
They said goodbye with a hug and Jasmina went away smiling. “She feels very special,” her mother Thea Anema told the NY Daily News.
