Ocasio-Cortez attended Yorktown High School, graduating in 2007, where she won second prize in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair with a microbiology research project on the effect of antioxidants on C. elegans' lifespan. As a result, the International Astronomical Union named a small asteroid after her: 23238 Ocasio-Cortez. In high school, she took part in the National Hispanic Institute's Lorenzo de Zavala (LDZ) Youth Legislative Session. She later became the LDZ Secretary of State while she attended Boston University. Ocasio-Cortez had a John F. Lopez Fellowship.
She graduated cum laude from Boston University's College of Arts and Sciences in 2011 with a bachelor's degree in international relations and a minor in economics.
29-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez makes history as the youngest woman ever elected to Congress
I only wish my kids were a "clueless" as this young woman.
Seems like she has been pretty successful in life so far, and I can only hope that my 22 year son does as well with the college fund he earned in the Marine Corp in his education and future endeavors.
