As the daughter of an Indian mother and an African-Jamaican father, she claims both heritages and chose to declare her candidacy on the day that is observed as Martin Luther King Day, honouring the slain African-American civil rights leader who was inspired by Mahatma Gandhi's message of 'satyagraha'.
She made the announcement on a national TV programme and simultaneously released a campaign video on social media with a call to "fight for American values".
