There are a lot of people who used to doubt Kamala’s qualifications to become the vice president of the United States. She has proven to people that she has all of the goods in order to be qualified. She is a politician, a lawyer, and also an author who says a lot about the type of mind that she has.

She got her education from Howard University for her BA, and she has received her JD from the University of California, Hastings. She has always been very open about being a student of color and the things that she went through. Even before the election, people have wanted to know more about her political stance more than her education.

Kamala Harris fits many qualifications to become the success politician that she is today, which has led her to become the first woman and first African American Vice President.

One of those is that she attended and graduated from the historically black college, which is Howard University. At this school, she studied the fields of political science and economics.

After graduating from Howard, she went to her home state to attend the University of California to study law. Shortly after obtaining her law degree, she went on to work for several District Attorney's Offices in California, before working as a Senator and now becoming a Vice President.

After finishing high school, Kamala Harris attended Howard University where she studied political science and economics. However, she was awarded a degree in political science and economics in 1986. After her first degree, she also attended the University of California, Hastings College of the Law where she studied law. In 1989, Kamala Harris graduated with a Juris Doctor and started her career as a lawyer in 1990, after she was admitted to the California bar. In 2016, she was elected to the US Senate to represent California. With that, she became the first Indian American to represent California in the US Senate. However, Joe Biden who won the Democratic party primary election picked Kamala Harris as his running mate. And both were able to defeat the current US president, Donald Trump.
