I love everything about this video. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is such a role model for my generation right now and I admire her in many ways. Her ability to push back, speak up for herself, and own who she is is going to shape the way women see ourselves going forward. This video of Vogue highlighting her ‘getting ready’ routine is more than what the title is. We see Alexandria starting her day, sharing the details of her day, why she chooses certain products over others and being her true authentic self. In fact, that’s what I like most about this video. She is no different than when she is being filmed for work or on her social media. Her voice doesn’t go up 5 octaves and she’s not pitching anything that she doesn’t stand behind.
We know that Alexandria doesn’t aspire to be an influencer, but if she did, she’d be off to a great start with something like this.
