Reese Witherspoon Recalls A Moment From Her Childhood And Celebrates Kamala Harris’ Nominee

The recipient of an Academy Award, two Golden Globe Awards, and a Primetime Emmy Award, actress Reese Witherspoon shared a memory of childhood through Instagram, along with one of her own child photos, and encouraged young women for believing in themselves while supporting Vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris.

The actress wrote that she woke up thinking about a moment from my childhood and continued:

“In the 3rd grade our teacher asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up, I raised my hand and said, ‘I want to be the first female President of the United States of America.’ Some of the kids laughed, but my teacher looked me in the eye and said, ‘I will be the first person to vote for you, Reese.’”

Witherspoon, who is listed among the World’s 100 Most Powerful Women, addressed women in the United States and added:

“My thoughts today are with women in our country, especially the young Black and Brown girls of our nation. Who have watched their mothers hold up their families, their communities, their cities, their states.”

Later, the ‘Legally Blonde’ actress praised Kamala Harris, the first African-American and the first Asian-American vice-presidential, and described the day when Harris became officially nominee as historic:

“Now you know that YOU too can work hard, dedicate your life to service and show up every day to help others, and YOU can RISE to become a Vice Presidential nominee in the United States of America. Today is a truly historic day! 🇺🇸 #KamalaHarris #WeHaveHerBack”
