Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not wasting any time making a name for herself in Congress. Just ten days after her election to the House of Representatives she is already making waves and getting into fights with senior lawmakers in her own party.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in many ways a typical millennial. The 29 year-old has been working as a waitress and bartender to make ends meet. And now that she has become the youngest woman ever elected to Congress she is still having financial problems because her new job won’t start for several months. In the meantime, she has to figure out how to pay her rent.
