(CNN) – Hillary Clinton beamed with emotion as she took the convention stage to become the first woman ever to accept a major U.S. party’s presidential nomination.
“It is with humility, determination and boundless confidence in America’s promise that I accept your nomination for President of the United States,” Clinton said to thunderous applause at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
Clinton appeared almost overcome with emotion as she entered the arena to loud cheers and embraced her daughter, Chelsea, who introduced her as the next President of the United States. She took a deep breath to collect herself as delegates in the crowd were in tears.
“When there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit,” she said.
