Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made waves through the internet as she started to lift the veil on political process via social media.
While politics are often considered to be confusing by design, as it’s hard to participate in something that most people don’t really understand.
However that is changing as the youngest serving congresswoman in history is demystifying the process by sampling posting some of her experience on Instagram.
For example upon apportionment to Congress, Ocasio-Cortez noted that no one warned her all of her clothes would stink from a lack of opportunity to do laundry.
In another posted story she shares that after arriving at orientation, you get awarded a “swag bag.”
She explained that in truth it is filled with “high security data devices,” such as a government-issued tablet and phone.
In sharing her experience, Ocasio-Cortez is making politics no longer out to be a mythical beast but an actual, understandable possibility for aspiring youth, something the world could use more of.
