London Breed made history when she was officially sworn in as the first Black female mayor of San Francisco on Wednesday.

During her swearing-in ceremony on the steps of City Hall, Breed said she was committed to making San Francisco, which was recently named the city with the most expensive rents in the world, more accessible to live in for people from all backgrounds, HuffPost reports.

“It never seemed possible that I could one day serve as Mayor,” she wrote in a tweet on the day of her swearing-in ceremony. “I would not be here today without the community that believed in me. I will do everything I can to afford those opportunities to the next generation.”
