Kamala inspired many this year, making history as the first Black woman and person of Indian descent to become the vice president-elect. Her acceptance speech after the election win resonated as a proclamation of victory for girls everywhere. "But while I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last," she said. "Every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a country of possibilities. And to the children of our country, regardless of your gender, our country has sent you a clear message: dream with ambition, lead with conviction, and see yourselves in a way that others may not, simply because they've never seen it before. But know that we will applaud you every step of the way."
