Here are 13 Kamala Harris quotes that every strong and independent woman can relate to!
Many celebrated the news when Joe Biden was announced as the 46th US President and Democratic Senator Kamala Harris as new Vice President.
What makes Kamala Harris so special is the fact she has shattered many barriers to reach this milestone. Kamala Harris, who is the United States’ first woman Vice-President, is a daughter to immigrants from Jamaica and India.
Barack Obama, who in 2008 enlisted Biden as his vice-president, has given her his glowing endorsement in an Instagram post shared on 11 August.
“She is more than prepared for the job. She’s spent her career defending our Constitution and fighting for folks who need a fair shake… Her own life story is one that I and so many others can see ourselves in: a story that says that no matter where you come from, what you look like, how you worship, or who you love, there’s a place for you here.”
Not only Barack Obama, but we also felt that Kamala Harris is the much-needed world leader we all need. Here are Kamala Harris’ inspiring quotes that you will relate to:
“I remember when my mother, Shyamala Harris, bought our first home. I was thirteen. She was so proud, and my sister and I were so excited.”
