Emily Rose is a self-described artist, geek, and fangirl. She’s also a mom who’s raising a budding fangirl of her own. While Emily’s 7-year old daughter has been a Star Wars fan since before she could walk, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has really given her someone to look up to.

Emily’s daughter has fallen head over heels in love with Rey. She tells Buzzfeed Life:

“Here was a young girl learning to use the Force like a Jedi, and flying the Millennium Falcon, and shooting a blaster,” she said. “It was amazing, and I was happy she loved Rey, and that she could imagine herself as the hero of the story.”

How does a geek mom celebrate her daughter’s new found hero? In this case, Emily painted a surprise mural for her daughter featuring Rey and BB-8. She was thrilled.

Lucky for us, Emily documented and tweeted the reaction. Check it out below.

Hey Emily, thanks for being an awesome mom and an awesome fangirl. You give me hope for the future.
