TIME: Inside Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's rise (April cover story)


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has made the cover of TIME magazine. Read it, buy it, frame it lol. My favorite sentence talks about what you can find in her office (she's my kind of gal): There’s a picture of Wonder Woman leaning in one corner of the office and a giant cardboard cutout of Cardi B’s face in another. A quote from the story:

Ocasio-Cortez has become the second most talked-about politician in America, after the President of the United States. Since beating 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary to represent New York’s 14th District last June, the 29-year-old former bartender has pressured 2020 presidential candidates into supporting her Green New Deal, made campaign-finance reform go viral and helped activists banish Amazon from Queens with a couple of tweets. No lawmaker in recent memory has translated so few votes into so much political and social capital so quickly. Her Twitter following has climbed from about 49,000 last summer to more than 3.5 million.
