AOC #WE Award Tribute Oct.9
Globally renowned and controversial figure, U.S Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest congressman ever, is the named recipient of the 2nd #WE Awards Tribute to be aired by the #WE Movement on Oct.9. AOC, as she has been known all over the media, won a surprise landslide victory over the 25 year incumbent with 72% of the vote. Since being in office, she has rocked the House floor making real advances, real changes and strong stands on many empowerment charges.
She put herself through college through a scholarship, and student loans and working as a bartender.
In the eyes of women, she is the ultimate national heroine of empowerment. Her stances and presence is so strong, that President Trump considers her a major threat , if not an enemy, and regularly bashes her publicly as do the male dominated fellow chambermen of the House of Representatives, and even the Senate, both of whose agendas AOC is constantly challenging.
#WE Host, Alyson Williams, The First Lady of Def Jam, will be the official celebrity host and official presenter of the Oct. 9 telecast.
