Washington : Two days after Joe Biden announced Kamala Harris as the candidate for vice president's post, former First Lady of the United States shared a heartening post for her. 

In her post, she mentioned how Harris has set an example for the girls of dark colour across the globe.

"You get used to it, even as a little girl—opening the newspaper, turning on the TV, and hardly ever seeing anyone who looks like you. You train yourself to not get your hopes up," she wrote in her post.

She, however, mentioned that change may take time but there are also signs of progress. "This week Senator @KamalaHarris, the daughter of Jamaican and Indian immigrants, became the first Black woman and first Asian-American woman on a major party’s presidential ticket," she added.

"I’ve been thinking about all those girls growing up today who will be able to take it for granted that someone who looks like them can grow up to lead a nation like ours. Because @KamalaHarris may be the first, but she won’t be the last," she wrote further.

Take a look at the post below:

Meanwhile, Donald Trump has tagged Kamala Harris as incompetent for the post.
