Vice President Kamala Harris congratulated the class of 2021, as she spoke to several high school seniors via video conference.
"I couldn't be more proud of you guys," she told the seniors. "The things that you all have accomplished, you give me such inspiration."
She went on to share some advice that her mother gave her.
"She said, 'You know Kamala, you may be the first to be many things, but make sure you're not the last,'" Harris told the seniors.
"Sometimes you're going to be in a room, and you're going to feel like the only one like you in that room, the only one that looks like you or the only one whose had your life experience but what I want you four to remember — and you have to hear me on this — we will all be in that room with you, so don't you ever feel alone. We are all in that room with you, applauding you on."
"Go forth and lead," she told the class of 2021.
