Kamala Harris

California Sen. Kamala Harris is now the first woman vice president-elect in United States history and the first woman of color to make it to the second-highest office.

For two decades in public life, Harris has achieved a lot of firsts: the first Black woman to serve as San Francisco’s district attorney, the first woman to be California’s attorney general, first Indian American senator, and now she will be working by Joe Biden’s side after he named her for the nomination to the number two spot in August amid cheers from supporters including women activists.

Harris was born in Oakland, California on October 20, 1964, to Shyamala Gopalan, a cancer researcher from India, and Donald Harris, an economist from Jamaica.

She was also named the second most powerful woman in the world and the first most powerful Black woman in the world this December.
