Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Honors Single Mothers In An Emotional Note To Her Mamá
Ocasio-Cortez went on to tell her mamá’s story, who was born in Puerto Rico and was raised in poverty. She married and
moved to New York City at a young age, without knowing English, to start a new life,
working odd jobs such as mopping floors, driving school buses, and answering phones. When Ocasio-Cortez’s father passed away, she was left a
single mother of two and the family had to start “over. & over. & over.”
