When the 116th Congress convened on January 3, 2019, AOC entered with no seniority, but with a large social media presence.

She was re-elected to a second term in 2020 after defeating John Cummings.

During the riots on Capitol Hill, AOC publicly spoke out about her fear of losing her life as a result of the violent protests on January 6.

Inside the halls of the Capitol during the riots, AOC said she and others were prepared for the possibility of dying.

"I certainly was thinking that (dying) was a possibility and I know many members thought that was a possibility as well, the security breaches are extremely serious and deserve investigations on their own," she said. 

"I want to be clear that this doesn't start or end at Capitol police but we need to know what happened with the National Guard."

AOC is just one of a handful of Democrats that have called for Donald Trump's impeachment after the violent Capitol Hill protests.

Did AOC contract Covid-19?

AOC tested positive for Covid-19 this week amidst a rise in cases due to the highly contagious Omicron variant.

The announcement comes one week after she traveled to Florida for a vacation with her longtime boyfriend, Riley Roberts.

“Representative Ocasio-Cortez has received a positive test result for COVID-19. She is experiencing symptoms and recovering at home,” a statement from her office said.

A total of 705,264 people tested positive for Covid-19 on January 5, according to the CDC website.

The New York State Health Department says studies have shown that those who are fully vaccinated have between a 90.2% and 95.7% lower chance of being hospitalized than those who are unvaccinated.

“The Congresswoman received her booster shot this fall," the statement said, adding, she "encourages everyone to get their booster and follow all CDC guidance.”

Who is AOC's boyfriend Riley Roberts?

Riley Roberts is a Scottsdale, Arizona native. He attended Boston University where he met AOC.

Roberts' LinkedIn says he earned dual degrees in Sociology and Finance at Boston University and attended Boston University's Questrom School of Business and he currently works in web development.

According to a Vogue profile, AOC described Roberts as an "easygoing redhead."

AOC and Roberts met in "true nerdy fashion" after they both attended a weekly Friday afternoon conversation hosted by the dean of Boston University, called Coffee and Conversation.

How long have they been dating?

AOC and Roberts have been dating for over four years now.

The couple broke up after graduating from Boston University when Roberts moved back to Arizona.

After reviving their relationship, Roberts decided to move in with AOC in the Parkchester neighborhood of the Bronx, where they still reside.

AOC is reportedly close with Robert's mother, Connie, a real estate agent from Arizona.

Connie bought AOC a pearl necklace she frequently wears.

"We wanted her to know she was special. It was given to her with love," Connie told AZ Central.
