Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems pretty excited to start her term on Jan. 3 and shared an endearing moment to mark the start of her journey.
On Thursday she posted on her Instagram an image of her new Capitol office plaque, which reads, “Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.”
“Transition time. It’s the little things that make it feel real. All for the Bronx and Queens,” she wrote in the caption.
This year she became a progressive sensation when she unseated longtime Rep. Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary for New York’s 14th Congressional District. At 29, the Bronx-born Ocasio-Cortez will be the youngest woman in history to serve in the U.S. Congress.
Her new plaque also made an appearance in her Instagram story, with the caption, “Things are getting real.” Spoken like a true millennial.
