Summary

Kamala Harris is a rising star in the political world, but who was she before she became a popular U.S. Senator and one of the most outspoken women in Washington D.C.?

The informative main text is supplemented by fact-filled sidebars and full-color photographs. Quotes from Harris are highlighted to motivate the next generation of political leaders to follow in her footsteps.
