MILFORD — Liliana Magazine, a fifth grader at Meadowside Elementary School, hopes to make a difference in the world by reducing stress and anxiety through increased literacy.

As part of the the Connecticut Democracy Center’s 2023 Kid Governor’s Cabinet, she will get a chance to do just that this year. Liliana joins four other fifth graders in the cabinet, led by the 2023 Kid Governor Elisavet “Ellie” Mendez of Monroe.

“It’s usually the adults who make a difference in the world, so it’s an opportunity for a kid to make a difference,” she said.

According to Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz, Connecticut’s Kid Governor program empowers fifth graders to change the world. It is a ground-breaking approach to civics education, she says, and immerses students in an actual election for their state’s kid governor, a fellow fifth grader, who will represent them during a one-year term of active leadership.

Kristin Magazine, Liliana’s mother, said her daughter was “amazing.”
