When you think of US politicians, you probably think of somebody like Trump. You probably don’t picture somebody like Alexandria, the 28-year-old daughter of working-class Puerto Rican parents who secured victory in the Democratic primary election in New York’s 14th congressional district in early 2018. Proposing universal health care, women’s rights, equality for ethnic and sexual minorities, higher minimum wages and criminal justice reforms, this young leader is ready to fight, and is unafraid to challenge the status quo. Don’t underestimate her - she might be a new face in US politics, but she’s certainly made her mark.
