Washington, Nov 7: 29-year-old, bubbly, gorgeious Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, walked into history of US Congress, becoming the youngest woman elected to Congress.
She was chosen to congress in the Tuesday’s election. On Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez defeated Republican Anthony Pappas.
She is also the first person of colour to represent the Democratic seat in Queens and the Bronx, which is largely immigrant. Ocasio-Cortezhe has never before held office.
One year ago, she was working in a bar to help support her family. She has championed her working-class and Puerto Rican roots as the daughter of a cleaner.
In the June primary, she had defeated 10-term Congressman Joseph Crowley. UNI
