From the moment Vice President-elect Kamala Harris stepped foot on the national stage, many girls, specifically Black and brown girls, saw in her a super hero, a possibility, and an aspiration.

It matters because, Black and brown girls were introduced to the possibility of dreams they may not have even dreamed—which allows those dreams to grow even bigger.

In the video below, they share what the election of the nation’s first Black Vice President, the nation’s first South Asian Vice President, and the nation’s first woman Vice President means to them.

They say thank you to Vice President-elect Harris for making history and giving them permission to do the same.
