Senator Kamala Harris, running mate to President-elect Joe Biden, has become the first female vice president-elect in the United States.

Harris’ victory represents many firsts to come to the White House.

With an Indian and Jamaican ancestry, she will be the first woman and first person to identify as Black and as South Asian-American in the role of vice president.

Also being a graduate of Howard University, she will be the first vice president to have graduated from a historically Black college and be a member of a Black sorority.

Harris, a senator from California, initially ran for president, but withdrew for lack of money.

She then cast her support for Joe Biden, who later picked her as running mate.

Harris made her mark in politics in California, where she served as San Francisco district attorney before going on to become attorney general of the state, the first African-American to serve in that role.

At 56, Harris who is set to become the vice president, positions herself to be a strong contender for the presidency in future elections, if she chooses to run again.
