Kamala Harris shared an important message Tuesday for all the little girls and boys who have big dreams.

On Tuesday, the vice president-elect took time from her busy schedule to post on Twitter an inspiring message for all the young ones who aspire to become "superheroes" when they grow up. Harris noted that superheroes already walk "among us" and anyone can grow up to become like them.

"I have a message for all the little girls and boys out there who dream of growing up to be superheroes: Superheroes walk among us. They’re teachers, doctors, scientists, vaccine researchers—and you can grow up to be like them too," Harris wrote on the micro-blogging website.

Netizens praised the incoming vice president for sharing a message of encouragement to the new generation and for highlighting the importance of these professions, with some saying they are excited about the new administration.

"Such words of wisdom and inspiration and great to see you and President Biden now duly elected and congratulations from the UK for succeeding," one user commented.

Another social media user said that she is looking forward to Joe Biden and Harris' tenure at the White House.

"This is the type of leadership I’m looking forward to. Thank you, Madam Vice President," another user added.

"Thank you Madam Vice President Elect. We are very excited to have you as the first of hopefully very many to come! Xoxo," @starbabe84 said.

In another tweet, Harris called for unity amid the global health crisis that has killed more than 411,000 people in the U.S. in the last eight months.

"Though we may be physically separated, we, the American people are united in spirit," Harris said.

She posted a picture of herself with her husband Doug Emhoff, President-elect Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden alongside her message.

Born in 1964, Harris served as the junior senator from California from 2017 to 2021 and as attorney general of California from 2011 to 2017.

She will be the first female vice president, as well as the first person of color to hold the post since Charles Curtis, a Native American, who served under Herbert Hoover from 1929 to 1933.

Kamala Harris ridiculed by Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan, drawing ire on social media.
