The First Lady responded to Beyonce's message with a few kind words of her own:

"Thank you for the beautiful letter and for being a role model who kids everywhere can look up to," Michelle replied via Twitter with her signature "-mo" tacked to the end, signifying the tweet was written by FLOTUS herself.

"Michelle is the ULTIMATE example of a truly strong African American woman. No matter the pressure, and the stress of being under the microscope -- she's humble, loving, and sincere," Beyonce's original note praised. "Thank you so much for every single thing that that u do for us -- I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to."
