Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also known by her initials, AOC, is an American politician and activist. As a Democratic Party Superstar, this Latina leader has been the U.S. Representative for my NYC district, New York's 14th Congressional since 1/3/19.

'Change Is Closer Than We Think.' Inside Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Unlikely Rise. I first met @AOC when she was running as a candidate for the seat held by veteran US Representative Joe Crowley, who served from 1999 to 2019, before losing renomination in the 2018 elections to her.

While she was visiting inside my building on City Island to meet and greet possible supporters we shook hands and traded pleasantries in Spanish. She wanted me to vote for her, but I immediately suggested she not waste her time because I am a journalist and also an NPA, therefore since I have no political affiliation, I could not vote during any of the primaries.

As they say... The rest is Herstory. At 29, she is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress and getting a Time Magazine cover.
