"It feels like I am being represented, it’s absolutely amazing! I am so excited for the next four years," said Mayreen Hamid, with "Vote! Vote!" scribbled across her sweatshirt.
On Saturday, 8 November, as the Biden-Harris win was announced, America took to the streets to celebrate with the clinking of drinks and honking of cars.
"This is the first time in four years where people are coming to celebrate instead of coming together to protest injustices, which I think so amazing! This is the first step to unity!" she said.
“For us, as Indian-Americans, it matters most. Today, this win for Biden and Harris, concedes the debate – who we are as Americans, and who we are as Indian-Americans,” said Elyas Mohammed, donning a Biden-Harris shirt, mirroring the flag behind him.
This electoral win has sowed the seed of hope among the young Indian-American community, which believes the next four years may bring actual change.
They've done their bit, it's now for Biden-Harris to get to work and change the US’ narrative.
