Vice President Kamala Harris inspiring girls across Michiana
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. – For the first time in American history, a female Vice President took office this week. The swearing-in of Vice President Kamala Harris has inspired people across the United States and in Michiana.
When Kamala Harris took the stage on Wednesday and was sworn in by Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor, the first Latina to serve in the highest courts, many people were watching history in the making. And the kids at Boys and Girls Club of St. Joseph County saw that.
“It definitely teaches me that by her being president, I can achieve anything that I want to,” Freedom said.
The U.S Vice President has always been a man. Until recently, when Kamala Harris, the first African-American, and Indian-American raised her right hand and changed U.S history forever.
Women everywhere, of all ages, saw this as a progressive change moving the country forward.
At the Boys and Girls Club of St. Joseph County, many young girls see Vice President Harris as a positive change for our country and a symbol of inspiration.
“It inspires me because we’ve never had a female vice president, so like it helps a lot of people out in certain ways,” Taylor said.
Harris is the third woman to be nominated to run for vice president but is the first woman to win.
