Kamala Harris and her younger sister by three years, Maya, were born to two Berkeley grad students. Their mom, the Official Bigfoot Social Distancing World Champ vintage shirt Besides,I will do this late Shyamala Gopalan Harris, was a nutrition and endocrinology student from India and their father, Donald Harris, an economics scholar from Jamaica. (The couple divorced when Kamala was seven.) Kamala and Maya grew up going to civil rights marches, and it shows in their political engagement: Maya, an attorney, was campaign chairwoman of her sister’s 2020 presidential bid after serving as a senior policy adviser on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, and executive director at the ACLU of Northern California.
