11-Year-Old's Kamala Harris Costume Gets VP Candidate's Stamp Of Approval
An 11-year-old Virginia girl's timely tribute to Kamala Harris got none other than the Democratic vice-presidential candidate herself a thumbs up.
Last week, Erinn Harley-Lewis of Vienna, Virginia posted a short video of her daughter Celeste Harley, dressed as Harris, on Twitter.
Celeste wears a blue blazer, pearl necklace and high heels and walks confidently down her family's driveway as if it were a debate.
"I want to help all Americans," she announced to her mother, who plays the role of reporter. "I want to provide health care for all, equality and justice according to the law."
Harley-Lewis posted the adorable video on Twitter on October 6th, just the day before Harris debated Vice President Mike Pence.
A day later, the clip received a seal of approval from Harris himself who quipped, "She has my voice."
By Friday afternoon, the Harley-Lewis video had been viewed more than 733,000 times and featured on national news outlets such as BET and Good Morning America.
Harley-Lewis said it touched her heart to see her daughter mimick Harris, the first black and Asian American woman to be nominated for vice president by a major party.
"It was a moving moment for me," she said. "When I was eleven, I had no one on this American political stage, not at this level. So for me it is certainly a step forward in history."
Although Harley-Lewis was honored by the support her family received on social media, she said her only goal in posting her daughter's video was to express her gratitude to Harris.
"I tossed it into the airwaves and thought," I'll at least thank her for a one-off chance that she sees this, "she told the WDVM news agency in Virginia." So it was, "I'm grateful Thank you for setting us a good role model - a good role model - and representative issues. "
