currency change $20

A Massachusetts girl who wrote a letter to President Barack Obama urging him to put a woman on U.S. paper currency has gotten her wish.

Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew announced Wednesday that African-American abolitionist Harriet Tubman will be featured on the front of the $20 bill.

Sofia turned 11 years old Wednesday. The Cambridge girl says it was the "greatest birthday present ever."

Lew called Sofia to wish her a happy birthday and congratulate her on the news. Sofia's last name wasn't provided.
