The funny thing about beginnings is that you rarely know you’re in them. My beginning felt like a dead end. My beginning was losing a parent to cancer, working a hard job in the wake of that loss, and complete uncertainty about the future of my family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This whole campaign started because the Bronx and Queens deserves leadership that is accountable to people over profits, and dares to pursue the most ambitious plan possible for our children’s future. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I fight for Medicare for All because I know what it’s like to feel like you’re one accident away from everything falling apart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I push for Cradle-to-College + trade school education FOR ALL because I know that it’s wrong to have your destiny determined by your zip code. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And lastly, I don’t take a dime from corporations because I know it’s the only way we get it done. No favors, no kickbacks, no short-changing working families and selling our futures to major corporations. Not ever. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Everyday Americans deserve better. We deserve a nation of opportunity for all. Of justice for all. Of dignity for all. And we will get it. #Ocasio2018 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @josealvarado
