Kamala Harris, Joe Biden’s running mate, is on the verge of making history to become the country’s first female vice president-elect.

Kamala, who had instantly become a force to reckon with, trended right beside America’s best choice - Biden.
It was her enigmatic character throughout the elections, her unshakable stance, but most of all, it was her name going right into the books of history as the first of many to come.
She ticked all the boxes: first woman, first black lady, first politician of Asian origin but most of all, an immigrant who travelled to the land of big opportunities with the aim of finding something better.
Immediately people learnt of her projected victory, they painted a picture of brighter days to come.
To them, Kamala's win was every woman's win.
The shift she made in history meant little girls across the world had one more magnificent woman to look up to.
A woman who clothed her strength in wits, bravery, calmness and determination.
A woman who would inspire generations to come and be referred to as "her", the "her" every downtrodden teenager needs to become.

She suddenly gave birth to a new narrative that will be told to the future grandchildren, their children, and their children's children.
The 56-year-old daughter of a biologist always thought black women were the backbone of America.
And she hoped that throwing her cap in the ring would create a butterfly effect that eventually added more seats to the table for ladies just like her.
Official results will be declared on December 14, 2020, after final counting.
