    Jill Biden


    Joe Biden was announced as the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election and his vice president, Kamala Harris, is the first African-American/Asian-American woman in a position this high in America. She is not alone in breaking boundaries for women; the first lady elect is going to be the first wife of the president to still keep her job while living in the white house.

    Currently, she is an English Professor at Northern Virginia and as the first lady, she will put most of her efforts towards education, appreciation of military families, and risks many women face such as breast cancer. She will advocate for the importance of community college because she believes community colleges are “one of America’s best-kept secrets.” She has also made quite an impact on many when it comes to her wardrobe.

    At Joe Biden’s commencement speech Jill Biden was seen wearing an Oscar de la Renta dress, a designer who had been known to dress First Lady’s of America and important figures (such as Princess Diana and Oprah). The two leading designers and embroidery of this brand are also known to be immigrants. So in wearing this dress, Jill Biden is more than just a style icon, she was a lady of tradition while still capturing modern America.

    Jill Biden proved as the Second Lady and will once again prove as the First Lady that she is a woman who will embrace traditional American values while promoting the most essential developments of modern America.
