As she stands on the doorsteps of the White House, poised to take her seat as the first Black vice president, Sen. Kamala Harris is making sure she inspires the next generation of trailblazers. The vice presidential candidate proved her intent in a video posted to Instagram. Harris’ niece, Meena Harris, posted the clip of Harris giving a pep-talk to her daughter, 4-year-old Amara Ajagu.

“You could be president,” the senator told Meena's 4-year-old girl. 

But Harris also preached patience to the excited little girl.

"You could be President, but not right now," the senator said. "You have to be over the age of 35."

Although the clip was short, Harris' niece said the conversation was much longer.

"This conversation went on for like an hour," Meena wrote.
