Playing text to speech
Kamala Devi Harris, is the first-ever Indian-origin, woman Vice-President of the United States. Harris has been a growing lead in Democratic politics for two decades. Harris served as the former attorney general of California, Daughter to an Indian mother and Jamaican father.
Kamala Harris has made an achievement by becoming the first-ever woman vice-president of the United States. Harris will be the first woman and African American elected as the vice president of the United States. Harris also becomes the first individual of Indian origin to endure the national office in the United States.
'This election is about so much more than @JoeBiden or me. It’s about the soul of America and our willingness to fight for it. We have a lot of work ahead of us. Let’s get started,' the elected Vice President tweeted later. Donald Trump got defeated by the Democrat Joe Biden to be appointed as the 46th president of the United States. His victory got accomplished when he exceeds the 270 electoral votes in Pennsylvania and won the residence at the White House.
Harris proved to become the rising star in Democratic politics for the last two decades. Soon Harris finished her own 2020 Democratic presidential campaign, as soon as the elected president of the US knocked on the door as his running mate. They will be taking oath as the President and the Vice President of the United States on 20 January.
As the elections conducted Donald Trump claimed electoral fraud in the US election. Harris tweeted later 'Over 100 million Americans voted before Election Day with a belief in our electoral process - trusting that their ballots would count. Now, Trump is trying to invalidate these ballots, and we need to fight back. Donate today to support the Biden Fight Fund.'
GREETINGS FOR THE CULTURE
Shyamala Gopalan, Harris's mother who was born in Chennai (India) and shifted to the United States to pursue her doctoral degree at the University of California Berkeley. 'When my mother Shyamala Gopalan walked off the plane at California when she was somewhere around 19 years old, she did not possess enough in way of belongings but she brought her lessons with her from home, the ones she had acquired from her parents,' Harris said.
Kamala means a “lotus flower' in Sanskrit, which is also a national flower of India, and Harris yielded greetings to her Indian culture during the campaign. Harris stated that my mother would take me and my sister Maya to her native country India because she desired her children to understand where she had come from and they never forget their roots.
'As we grow up, my mother would take my sister Maya and me back to Madras because she wanted us to assume that from where we were originated and where we had ancestry. And, definitely, she always wanted to instill in us, a love of good Idli,' Harris said.
FIGHT FOR RACISM
Harris' mother raised and told her daughters with the perception that the world would look at them and comment as Black women, Harris said, and that is whereby she expresses herself today. She served Howard University, one among the oldest nation’s historically Black colleges and universities, and swore Alpha Kappa Alpha, the countries first association founded by and for Black women. She competed constantly at HBCUs and always attempted to approach the attention of young Black men and women anxious for strong aims to strike systemic racism.
Her success, achievements, and victory would definitely escort more Black women and racism into politics.
