Kamala Harris’s Mom Will Be on Her Mind When She’s Sworn In Next Month

Speaking with Good Morning America today, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris revealed the one person she’ll be thinking about when she is sworn in to office next month.

“I’ll be thinking about my mother,” said Harris, who will become the first female and the first Black and South Asian vice president of the United States in January. “But I feel a very big sense of responsibility. As I said recently, I will be the first, but I will not be the last. I was raised by a mother who said that to me all the time, ‘Kamala, you may be the first to do many things—make sure you’re not the last.’ That’s how I feel about this moment.”

Harris’s mother, Shyamala Gopalan, died at 70 in 2009.
