THE FIRST WOMAN VICE PRESIDENT OF USA: KAMALA HARRIS

Kamala Harris is an American politician, 49th Vice President of the United States of America since 20 January 2021. Born in Oakland on October 20, 1964, Kamala Harris grew up in Berkeley with her younger sister Maya Harris. She studied at Howard University and Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. After graduation, she became the first Asian-American woman elected to the Senate.
On August 12, 2020, she was chosen by the Democratic candidate Joe Biden as candidate vice president ahead, of the presidential election in which the Democratic party prevailed, making her the first female vice president and first Asian-American vice president in the history of the United States of America.
In December 2020 the US weekly “Time” selected her as “person of the year” along with Joe Biden. On November 19, 2021, she becomes the first woman to hold the role of US president, although she only temporarily took over Biden’s power due to health problems. In 2009 Kamala Harris raised the conviction rate for serious crimes to 76% and in 2011 promoted criminal penalties for parents of children who “skipped” school for a long time for no reason. What is more, she gave great emphasis on environmental protection, she did a lot of regulations regarding crimes and human rights and said that life imprisonment is a better punishment than the death penalty. She also announced an agreement with Apple, Amazon, Google, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, and Research in Motion to have apps sold on their respective computing platforms display explicit privacy statements to alert users to what private informations they were sharing and with who.
She’s a woman to take an example from, no woman before her has been called to play a role as important as hers in America. Her life was not easy, but she has shown that with goodwill you can get anywhere. She said a short and historical sentence to American citizens “I’m the first woman, but won’t be the last”.
