Sophia, March 2015 Metro Parent CoverKid – VIDEO

Not just any kid could pull off waterworks for a photo for the cover of a magazine. But Sophia, 8, of Dearborn Heights is definitely that kid! Energetic and dramatic in all the right ways, this budding thespian captured a tricky emotion with finesse, charm and a lot of laughter.

Why’d we want a kid to cry? To complement the subject of our cover story of our March 2015 issue of Metro Parent, which focused on parenting a sensitive child. Get a behind-the-scenes peek at how we helped her get a little bit teary-eyed. Plus, Sophia shares her singing chops (another talent!) and dishes a bit about her own sensitive little brother:

For a second year, Metro Parent teamed up with MESP (that’s the Michigan Education Savings Plan) to host our CoverKids contest – and invest in local kids’ futures. Think of MESP as a 401(k), only for your child’s college, vs. your retirement. The money you put in it is tax-free, thanks to its federal “529” status. You can start one up with just $25, and contribute as little as $15 per pay period. There’s no limit to how much you add annually, though the max account balance is $235,000. Your kid can ultimately use the cash for tuition, room and board, and other college costs.

Interested in your kid being on the cover of Metro Parent magazine? Check out the Metro Parent CoverKids page. We’re looking for kids for our 2015-16 covers – and the deadline is 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday March 31 2015. Natural self-confidence, poise and personality are what it takes. You never know: Your kid might wind up in the spotlight, too.
