Joe Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris made history by becoming the first woman, the first black person and Indian-American to be the vice-president of the US. 

In her first address to the US as vice-president-elect, Kamala Harris said she was grateful to her mom Shyamala Gopalan Harris as whatever she is today because of her. She also said when her mother had come to this country at the age of 19, did not imagine that one day her daughter will be vice-president of this country. But she had always admired and believed truly in America that one day this can be made possible.

The 57-year-old said it out loud as she paved towards making an American history that she is admiring the generations of women, Asian, black women, white, native and Latin women who have lived for this moment to happen someday. She addressed a rally in the home city of Joe Biden, Wilmington, Delaware.

Kamala Harris is the daughter of an Indian immigrant and a Jamaican-born father.

When Joe Biden chose her as his running mate, Kamala Harris had connected to her Indian roots in her recognition speech. She had spoken about her girlhood trips to Tamil Nadu, India and the support she experienced from her aunts.

On the day they won the election post winning the battleground state of Pennsylvania. Kamala Harris shared a video of her calling Democrat Joe Biden and said that they did it and he is going to be the 46th US president.

In her speech in the victory rally in Delaware, she mentioned that every girl watching tonight will see America as a country full of possibilities.

In Pennsylvania, where Trump earlier won by over 44,000 votes, Biden’s edge was around 34,000. In Wisconsin, Trump won with 22,000 votes in 2016 is relative to Biden’s 2020 win by 20,000 votes.
