A Pin from Madeleine Albright

A couple of weeks ago Madilyn played Madeleine Albright for an oral report/wax museum at school. We tweeted about it & Ms. Albright sent Madilyn a pin from her collection!

The note says:

“I loved hearing that you played me and that you did a lot of research. I thought you might want to add to your pin collection one of my pins. Good luck! Madeleine Albright”

Madilyn was so excited to open it. What a thoughtful, generous way to plant a seed for a bright future.





Kid President? Meet Kid Secretary.

I tweeted @Madeleine Albright a link to a picture and video of Madilyn’s portrayal of her at the 2nd grade wax museum, and she RT’ed us, replied and is sending Madilyn a pin for her collection. What a treat to have one of the most powerful and accomplished women in the world take the time to encourage a little one to study hard & dream big.

Now… who thinks Kid President needs a Kid Secretary?



2nd Grade Wax Museum: Madeleine Albright

Seven-year-old Madilyn was honored to portray Madeleine Korbel Albright in her 2nd grade class “wax museum” today. She’s an inspiration to girls everywhere who desire to make the world a better, more just place. #‎LeanInTogether‬


Madeleine Albright is not only brilliant, but she remains relevant. Who else can out-wit Conan O’Brien on Twitter, crush a cameo with Amy Poehler on Parks & Rec, leg press 450 pounds at age 77 and have a traveling exhibit of her fashionable and politically powerful pins? It’s the same women whose most famous sound bite is: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.”

Ready for her audience!


Press the button on her hand and she would come alive! Madilyn was pretty sure Ms. Albright would wear red nail polish.


Madeleine Albright is known for her extensive pin collection (every pin has a meaning behind it), so Madilyn represented that with this prop.


She made a poster with lights — because Albright is all bright!
