Kamala Devi Harris is an American politician, attorney and the vice president-elect of the United States who has been US Senator from California since 2017 to 2020, when she was elected to be US Vice President.
Who her Parents are pretty much tells about her ethnic origins. Her father, Donald Harris is Jamaican and her mother is Shyamala Gopalan Harris who both met in a California college. Her name depicts her heritage as Indian. Thus making Kamala an Asian-African American.
Little wonder then, that one of the first outstanding global leaders to offer his congratulatory message to President-elect Joe Biden with special mention of Kamala Harris first, is the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.
Heartiest congratulations @KamalaHarris! Your success is pathbreaking, and a matter of immense pride not just for your chittis, but also for all Indian-Americans.

Never mind too, that Prime Minister Modi is one of the few world leaders to fete President Donald Trump and his wife to a State visit in India.
Kamala Harris was born on 20 October 1964 (age 56 years) at Oakland Medical Center, Oakland, California, United States.
Spouse: Douglas Emhoff (m. 2014)
Education: UC Hastings College of the Law (1989), Howard University (1986).
Howard University that Kamala Harris attended is a traditionally black US University.
Kamala’s parents separated when she was seven years old.

That would make the first female, first Asian black American a strong contender for the Democratic Party nomination. Kamala Harris may be the first female in the Presidency, but she has promised not to be the last.
Here’s Kamala Harris on plans to hit the ground running:
“Now the real work begins. To beat this pandemic. To rebuild our economy. To root out systemic racism in our justice system and society. To combat the climate crisis. To heal the soul of our nation. The road ahead won’t be easy. But America is ready. And so are
