KAMALA HARRIS: US’ First Woman, First Coloured, First Asian VP

Kamala Harris has become the first woman, person of colour and of Asian descent to hold the position of vice president-elect in the US.

Harris, a first-term senator from California, comes from a family of immigrants. Her mother was Shyamala Gopalan, an Indian who came to the US to work as a biologist and researcher. Her father, Donald J Harris, came from Jamaica to study at Stanford University, where he received a PhD in economics.

That makes Harris, who was already the first Black woman from California to serve in the Senate, the first female, Black and Indian person to hold the office.
