A year after Kamala graduated from Hastings College with the degree in law, she enrolled herself as a deputy district attorney (1990–98) in Oakland and sued the cases regarding gang violence, drug trafficking, and sexual abuse. With her outstanding career credits, she made her way to the position of district attorney in 2004. Later in 2010, she had a narrow escape from the defeat in the election of the attorney general of California where she won by a margin of less than one percent and became the first female to hold the post. 

Kamala also won the election of U.S. Senate in 2016 and had been serving on both the Select Committee on Intelligence and the Judiciary Committee. Besides that, she has also published several books including her memoir, The Truths We Hold: An American Journey, Smart on Crime and others. In 2019, she announced her candidacy for Democratic presidential nomination in 2020. 

After the announcement, she launched the presidential campaign in her hometown, Oakland, on 27 January 2019 where she did not miss to promise to deliver on a series of progressive leadership aimed for the ordinary people. Her speech in the campaign included the provision for the Medicare for all people, debt-free college as well as the reduction in tax cut which directly and positively affects the working families. 

Kamala's speech also entangled the administration of Donald Trump's presidential council and criticized racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, and homophobia in the nation. She also did not miss to criticize the political leaders for undermining the democracy and even for bullying the press and media. Furthermore, she asserted that she would treat all the people of the United Nations of America with dignity and respect if she had the honor of being the President of the nation. Besides that, Kamala mentioned that she might not be the perfect candidate, but she would try to emphasize every aspect to uplift and raise the sense of unity amongst the Americans. 

If Kamala will be elected as the President in 2020 Presidential election, she would be the first woman to serve in the high position of the nation in American History.
