Four years after becoming the second Black senator and first South Asian-American senator in history, Kamala Harris was sworn in as the 49th Vice-President of the United States on Wednesday at Capitol Hill, breaking another glass ceiling in America.
Harris is the first Black, South Asian-American, Indian-American and female vice-president in U.S. history. She served as the junior senator from California since 2017 and ran for president in the 2020 Democratic primaries, though eventually dropped out citing a shortage of funds and endorsed Joe Biden. She was announced as Biden’s running mate in August 2020.
She also served as attorney general of California prior to serving in the Senate.
