The daughter of a Tamil mother and a Jamaican father, Kamala Harris has been elected as vice president of the Unites Sates, making history in more ways than one in the process. Joe Biden will be the president of the United States. The results are according to projections from the Associated Press.
Only two other women have been nominated as vice-presidential candidates - Sarah Palin by the Republican party in 2008 and Geraldine Ferraro by the Democrats in 1984. Neither made it to the White House.
Kamala Harris is also the first woman of colour, and the first person of Tamil background to become vice president in the history of the U.S.
