Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez plays League of Legends, and she’s pretty good



Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a well-known member of the Democractic Party in the US who serves as the Representative for New York’s 14th Congressional District. She stepped into to our little spotlight recently when she, along with other US politicians, signed a letter calling on Blizzard to reverse the punishment it imposed on Hearthstone Grandmaster Chung “Blitzchung” Ng Wai. But it recently came to light that she actually plays League of Legends, too—and she’s pretty good at it.

According to Inven Global, Ocasio-Cortez played League of Legends during college, but fell away from the game until last year, when a chat with Colorado governor Jared Polis convinced her to pick it back up. Polis is an avid player himself, and was actually featured in LoL’s Community Spotlight in 2015, when he was still a Congressman.
