“My mother had many sayings. She said, ‘Kamala, you may be the first to do many things. Make sure you are not the last.’ Let us continue to keep that path and that door open, and make it bigger and wider for all those who are counting on us,” she said later on in her speech.

Following the event, Megan posted several photos on Instagram.

One of the pictures features the Grammy Award-winning rapper, 28, confidently sticking her tongue out while taking a selfie with Harris.
