Hillary Clinton's Letter to Girl Who Wants to Go by Lillary

Hillary Clinton's Amazing Response to a Girl Who Wants to Change Her Name to "Lillary"

In what little free time she has in between preparing for the upcoming debates and, you know, running for president, Hillary Clinton responded to a 7-year-old, Lilly, who has her own big dreams.

Lilly's mom, Jennifer Rosen Heinz, initially wrote to Hillary after her daughter expressed a hilarious desire to change her name to "Lillary." The response she got will likely be stuck on the fridge for quite some time.

In it, Hillary said she was touched by Lilly's idea, however, urged her to stay true to herself. She said, "I hope you know that you don't have to change it to become president; if you dream big, work hard, and care deeply about what you believe in, there's no limit to what you can achieve."


Hillary then encouraged Lilly to make her voice heard at school and, eventually, in the workplace. "If the space you're in doesn't have room for your voice, don't be afraid to carve out a space of your own," she wrote. Hillary ended the letter by suggesting that Lilly could very well be the next woman president — that is, of course, if Hillary becomes the first.
