Fresh perspective on Florida politics


At 21, Amber Mariano became the youngest person ever elected to the Florida House of Representatives. Now, with her second legislative session under her belt, we caught up with her to get her perspective about Florida politics.

Biggest surprise about being in Florida politics? That women only make up 23% of the Florida House. That percentage should be higher.

Biggest accomplishment? Passing my first bill, HB 859, which offers college and university students greater access to online distance education.

Who are your mentors? Rep. Jennifer Sullivan — she has provided me so much guidance about being a young woman in politics.
