Hillary Clinton capped Tuesday’s proceedings at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia with an empowering message to young girls. 

Clinton made history earlier Tuesday when she was officially named the Democratic presidential nominee, becoming the first woman to be nominated by a major party. 

Her brief remarks at the end of the evening were preceded by a photo montage of all the former presidents, from George Washington to Barack Obama. Then, a collage of their portraits on the Wells Fargo Center screen appeared to shatter, revealing Clinton, live from New York via satellite feed.

“I can’t believe we just put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling yet,” she said before going on to share a message for her youngest constituents. “If there are any little girls out there who stayed up late to watch, let me just say: I may become the first woman president, but one of you is next,” she said.

The DNC continues through Thursday. Elizabeth Banks, Lena Dunham and America Ferrera, and former U.S. President Bill Clinton were among the speakers Tuesday.
