Samantha Power is officially the new U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Vice President Joe Biden administered the oath of office to the 42-year-old Power on Friday, a day after the Senate overwhelmingly approved the outspoken human rights advocate by a vote of 87-10.

A former foreign policy adviser to President Barack Obama, Power succeeds Susan Rice, now the president's national security adviser.
