Kamala Harris was elected as the 46th Vice President of the United States, alongside Joe Biden. She will be the first woman, the first Black person, and the first person of Indian descent to hold that office.

This means a lot, not just for the U.S., but for the whole world. Things are changing, and it may just be that diversity finally will get understood as one of the most important values globally.

Diversity, through learning and respect, makes us the best versions of ourselves. We learn different perspectives; we gain more insights. Our view expands from a narrow gap into a wide window of the world.

We can't stay isolated. In this day and age, everything is connected. We aren't living in separate civilizations that have not yet discovered each other; we're all together, more connected than ever before. So we need to embrace that, not deny it.

When you surround yourself with people just and only like you, you'll never get the full picture of life; just a tiny broken fracture.

Thank you, Senator Harris.

On diversity we build.
