Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, the US Congress Representative (Democrat) has been in the limelight for quite a while now.
Her campaign celebrates her principles and concentration on issues with capitalism, environment, tax policy, LGBTQ equalities, healthcare and so forth.
She has made the news for various reasons. Her college dance, her stern socialistic views and many more. But her latest tweet just made her relatable to Bengali audiences on a whole new level!
The fierce and quirky socialist politician is here to stay!
Responding to a tweet, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (popularly known as AOC) tweeted about her attempt to learn Bengali. This is for her Netflix special “Knock Down the House”. It is a political documentary where we see her speak a few lines in Bengali.
She further tweeted about how she aims to pursue her knowledge centring on the Bengali language because of her confidence and love for the community.
On June 4, 2018, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez ended one of her campaign videos thanking the community saying, “Apnar voter jonye dhonnobad.” [Thank you for your vote].
AOC’s exceptional love for Bengali community
Her energetic and wholesome campaigns not only come from her beliefs. They also come from the diverse support group she has, who she is seen to speak of greatly. Her Bengali American chiefs of staff, Saikat Chakraborty and Naureen Akhter are believed to be her support as they create a bridge of connection between the known politician and the Bengali community.
The idea of attempting to learn various different languages shows how important it is for politicians to learn about their supporters in order to understand different communities of America.
