Two-year-old Serenity may look like your average toddler, but she's about to school you in the cutest way. The little girl, who has memorized the names of influential black leaders and figures — such as Rosa Parks and Thurgood Marshall — with the help of her mom, Miriam Moore, got in front of the camera to show off her vast knowledge in honor of Black History Month. And the now-viral video is so adorable, you're going to melt into a puddle watching it.

I personally reached puddle status when she got to Booker T. "Washishun," but she had me done before it even really started because these days I get overcome with longing at the mere sound of Barack Obama's name (anyone else? Just me? Can't be).

"Over the last year, she has become very excited about learning new things. Her teachers and I collaborate about her interests and share information daily," Miriam told POPSUGAR. "Her preschool teacher mentioned that she introduced Black History Leaders to the class and Serenity was very interested. Her teacher showed me the class bulletin board that had the names and pictures of each historical figure. I took a picture of the board and printed it to work with her at home. Every day, we reviewed the names of each person. I would point to their picture and say their name. She learned them quickly! Not only could she name them, she could identify them . . . She is currently learning at least one fact about each leader."

Miriam's video has gotten over two million views in the two weeks it's been up, and I think it's safe to say that at this rate, it's going to keep going viral long after Black History Month is over. To keep up with what Serenity's learning, follow her on Instagram!
