From the article:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quietly made history on Friday, becoming the youngest woman to ever preside over the House of Representatives.

The freshman congresswoman, a 29-year-old Democrat who represents New York’s 14th congressional district, took up Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s chair and ran the chamber for about an hour, Reuters reported. Members of Congress who temporarily preside over the House (called serving as the speaker “pro-tempore”) are expected to maintain order and decorum and ensure that the House rules are followed. Members of the House majority periodically take turns presiding over the chamber during day-to-day business.
