Barack Obama arrived in the city ahead of the start of the G8 Summit in Enniskillen, with a huge security entourage in tow.
But Belfast Methodist pupil Hannah Nelson was one of the lucky few who got up close and personal with the leader and his wife as she was chosen to give a speech in front her fellow pupils, politicians and others gathered at the Waterfront Hall.
The seventeen-year-old told UTV's Alison Fleming that she had entered a competition run by the US consul, and didn't realise she would eventually read it out on stage.
The young people in this room want and deserve to live in peace. Northern Ireland is my home - the reality is it has a future.
Hannah speaking in the Waterfront Hall
"I just felt that if I could write something and if people could hear it then hopefully young people would listen to my message, and take the words into action and go out into the world and try to make it a better place for all of us to live in," she explained.
"It wasn't until a couple of days after that I heard I would be introducing Michelle Obama as well, that was very exciting and something that I never thought that I'd get to do."
After introducing the First Lady, she was greeted by Michelle who embraced her in a hug before thanking her for her "bold and wonderful" words.
During her speech, she said: "As a 16-year-old I don't want to live in the past, I want to live for the future.
"I want to live in a country where it is not my religion that is important but my value as a person which is significant."
They were glad that somebody, a young person was able to present their views and it wasn't just politicians saying what they think.
The grammar student said the day is "a bit of a blur for her" but she acknowledged what an opportunity it was.
"It is just amazing for me as a young person to spread my message and the feedback I've received has all been positive, from young people, older people - everybody believes in what I've said.
Despite her foray into politics, she said she has no long-term aspirations to make it her career.
Hannah added: "It was just me trying to get my message across, I think people should be treated equally, no matter who you are, no matter where you're from."
Even though her memories are a little hazy - she was given some special presents to help her remember that day - some badges from the secret service and a signed picture of her backstage with Michelle and Barack Obama.
