Seems this 9-year-old girl’s emotional letter to Pres. Obama inspired the face of Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill

Sophia was just 9 when she penned a curious letter to President Obama 2 years ago asking him why there aren’t women in any dollar/coin on the United States currency.

The Massachutes girl who is now 11 has finally got her greatest wish as the US Treasury Secretary, Jacob J. Lew on Wednesday announced move to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with Harriet Tubman, the former slave and abolitionist. Ironically, Harriet was one of the icons mentioned by lil girl in her letter. See letter below;
