Kryptonite Can Give You Superpowers!

If there was ever a person who possessed the qualities described above it is Lidia Szczepanowski, Esq., Model Citizen’s 2021 Woman of the Year. She inspires and brings hope to others the way a beacon of light guides ships at night. Lidia exemplifies the real-life embodiment of the words success, independence, entrepreneurship, and glamour and she does so with humility, integrity, and passion. Lidia acquired a plethora of knowledge over the years as a litigation and business development attorney, business strategist, entrepreneur, black belt in karate, and international spokesmodel. More importantly, despite her extraordinarily busy schedule, she has always been most passionate about “giving back” through proactive “hands-on” participation in philanthropy and philanthropic activities.

Model Citizens recognizing and supporting other model citizens…

Model Citizens Magazine is a New York Based publishing company (TradEconomy, Inc.) in publication since 2013. It is the FIRST Model Citizens Magazine brand despite the “knockoffs” that now circulate the internet. Originally Model Citizens Magazine was published as a geographically specific publication that brought international communities together through art and commonality. By combining local content with international content, and then geo-targeting the resulting publications to specific international locations, Model Citizens Magazine was able to obtain hundreds of thousands of international followers. Now Model Citizens Magazine is published monthly and geo-targeted more specifically to Long Island, New York City, and the general tri-state area. (with the exception of international and specialty issues)

As of April 2020, Model Citizens Magazine began publishing again after a short hiatus by publisher John Joseph Dowling Jr. after John underwent a series of life-saving surgeries including Open Heart Surgery, and several other co-morbid surgeries. Fortunately, John was given the opportunity to LIVE! It was nothing short of a miracle and now two years later John is looking forward to a long and grateful life.

Living in gratitude, paying it forward, and cherishing chapters of love, as a way of life.

Model Citizens Magazine pays tribute to individuals who have conquered adversity, live in gratitude, and pay it forward as a way of life. John himself wrote a novel from his memoirs Chapters Of Love, and as a result, hundreds of thousands of people were inspired to read his novel online. You can read Chapters Of Love’s original blog posts on ChatpersOfLove.com, listen to the audiobook, or purchase his novel from Amazon.

Model Citizens Magazine Was born from Adversity

John and his team of model citizens not only share stories about other model citizens, but they also share opinions on national and international topics and news stories. Only previous model citizens can nominate new model citizens for future issues and nominations need to be seconded by at least two previous model citizens. This ensures the integrity of the award and the ongoing authenticity of the publication. All of the model citizens featured in Model Citizens Magazine share their stories honestly and the adversity they went through at some point in their lives. From beating cancer to learning how to live again after losing a child, parent, sibling, lover, or friend. All of these stories are inspirational and show how great adversity can and does create a great opportunity to motivate others.

A new distribution model for a new world

Model Citizens Magazine has a completely new business model for distribution providing compressed copies for its model citizens to post on social media, email directly, text entire issues, and post on their own social media sites. The fine art original photographs and individual stories of those recognized in each issue can also be printed on museum-quality photographic papers, canvas, and displayed in the “Real World” offices and homes of those who are honored. This allows the subjects to obtain the most value from each month’s issue.

Censorship and manipulation of content by social media sites gives rise to ModelCitizensMagazine.com

Because of censorship by social media networks, Model Citizens Magazine has developed this website as a central repository and hub for distribution. Model Citizens Magazine is politically neutral and allows members of any political party to voice their opinion without judgment or censorship. We do not cater to any political party or take contributions from political parties. Our contributor’s opinions and political views are diversified and varied.

How is Model Citizens Magazine Funded?

Model Citizens Magazine is funded by advertising, donations, and direct contributions by the model citizens portrayed in the issues themselves. NO-ONE can BUY a nomination and contributions are voluntary but are the foundation as to how Model Citizens Magazine has been able to become the voice of Long Islander.
