My Picture Tells A Story

Kamala Harris Inspired

November 7, 2020

“Kamala Harris will become the first woman to serve a heartbeat away from the presidency. That is the highest elected office ever to be held by a woman in the United States. And she will be the first Black American and the first Asian American to ever be elected Vice President. Certainly, a historic moment as well. Of course, on the hundredth anniversary of the 19th Amendment that gave women the right to vote, there is finally a woman in the White House.”

CBS News, anchor Norah O’Donnell

What Her Election Means To Me

Across the country as the news broke that day, Americans spontaneously broke into joyous celebration.  Into the streets women, men, teenagers, and children of all colors and backgrounds exalted the news of the historic event. The election of President elect Joe Biden and the first female Vice President elect, Kamala Harris.

Watching the festivities unfold on my television, reporters were interviewing women, female teenagers, preteens who were vividly expressing their feelings. In their own way, each female conveyed how proud and inspired they were to witness the election of the first female elected to be Vice President of the United States. I was inspired by their stories. This was their “sister” and she showed each of them, anything was possible.

This is the result of that inspiration. Eight stories told by Yuqing, Harlene, Andrea, Barbara, Cora, Mary, Ethel, and Michelle and retold by me. Eight women of different ages, ethnicities, and experiences, sharing what this moment meant to them.
