Who is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, often referred to by her initials AOC, is an American politician and activist who has emerged as a prominent figure within the Democratic Party. Born on October 13, 1989, in New York City, Ocasio-Cortez gained national attention in 2018 when she defeated incumbent Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary for New York's 14th congressional district, despite being significantly outspent. This victory propelled her to become the youngest woman ever to serve in the United States Congress. AOC's political platform is characterized by progressive policies such as the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, and increased economic equality. With a strong presence on social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram, she has amassed a considerable following and often uses these channels to communicate directly with her supporters and advocate for her policy priorities. Ocasio-Cortez's blend of grassroots activism, social media savvy, and progressive ideals has cemented her as a key influencer in American politics, particularly among younger generations.
