Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday briefly grabbed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s gavel to preside over the House — reportedly becoming the youngest woman ever to do so.

The Democrat, who represents New York’s 14th Congressional District, tweeted the news.

“Every day here is a sacred privilege + responsibility entrusted to me by my community. I never forget that, and moments like these drive it home,” she wrote.
