Is this a surprise? Many colleges had long ago let students decide whether to take Subject Tests, but the test results were still frequently used for freshman course placement, or to fulfill language requirements.

But it’s important to note that Harris is different from Obama, in that she is in a governing role. And the fashion choices of female political leaders are often scrutinized, however unfairly. From the time the first woman was elected to Congress in 1917 to 1993–when newly elected senator Carol Moseley Braun unknowingly showed up to work in an Armani pantsuit–there was an unspoken rule that women were not to wear suits: They were a symbol of male power. Over the past two decades, and especially in the past four years, there’s been a notable shift: Women in office and those running for office, have not only embraced the suit, but appropriated it as a symbol of female power by wearing bold, colorful colors.

After I left college, I did not take the path of least resistance—I didn’t take the job that paid the most money, nor did I take the first few jobs offered to me. I held out for opportunities that I knew would advance my career, my network, and my skill set, and where I felt I could get along with the people who worked there. Most important, if I couldn’t be in a position to learn, then I wouldn’t take the position. I’m very curious, and my thirst for knowledge is how I’ve been able to create so many different roles in my career. There may have been doors closed to me because I am a Black woman, but I’m also an artist, a songwriter, and a designer, and I see the world differently.
