From A dvocate to F eminist, L atinx to Q ueens, S cience to Z eal, and everything in between, ABCs of AOC is the perfect inspirational conversation starter for young people interested in government and activism, and the ultimate gift for any Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez admirer who embraces her values and ideals, or wants to learn more about the groundbreaking Congresswoman. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made headlines in 2018 by becoming the youngest woman ever elected to Congress at 29 years old. Born and raised by her Puerto Rican family in New York City, she got her start in politics as a Senate intern and then a community organizer. While working multiple low-wage jobs to pay the bills, Ocasio-Cortez launched a grassroots congressional campaign on a progressive platform of Medicare for all, immigration reform, gun control, mobilizing against climate change, and housing as a human right. Her underdog primary win and bold advocacy from congress has made her one of the most talked about new legislators in Washington.
