US Congress Representative (Democrat) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been a mainstay on the news circuit since the early days of her congress election campaign. Her activism and outspoken nature has turned her into the standard bearer for a new generation of politicians at the House of Representatives.

Going viral on the internet is nothing new for AOC, as the congresswoman is popularly known. However, her latest reason to go viral is due to footage of her speaking Bangla.

In a post that has been retweeted over 4,600 times, AOC proudly states that the district she was elected from speaks around 200 languages, and admits she can only speak four. 

The original tweet from Zara Rahim was prompted by the Netflix biopic “Knocking Down The House” which covers AOC’s rise to the forefront of US politics.

In an YouTube video unearthed by Dhaka Tribune, AOC greets her constituents and asks them to vote for the June 2018 US mid-term polls, which she went on to win.

The congresswoman later said her next target was to learn to speak Bangla, albeit jokingly.

During her campaign, she had also tweeted in Bangla, proposing Medicare and free college education.
