There are a lot of people who have gotten interested in Kamala Harris ever since she became elected as the vice president of the United States. First of all, she is the first woman of color to become elected as vice president. She has also represented California in the US Senate back in the year 2017.

Her ancestry is Indian−American which means that she is the first woman to have been elected to a major political party. She has grown up observing different cultures probably because of the things that her family does. Her mother is a cancer researcher. Kamala has started to become interested in learning and exploring new things at an early age.
