This month we bring you Amber Patiño and her family. We first introduced Amber back in November of 2015, when she was barely starting out in the industry, with the support of her parents and her special needs sister, Nicole. Since then, Amber hasn’t wavered from pursuing her dreams and continues to strive, bringing back hard-earned advice and tips for young actors that want to take a shot at the entertainment industry. Don’t miss her advice. 

In that November 2015 issue, SOHM also focused on Amber’s family, who plays a very important supporting role in her nascent talents, and has formed a circle around her called, Team Amber, to guide and motivate the young artist to her full potential. Experienced and aware beyond her years, Amber acknowledges the time and effort given by her friends and family. Now, Amber shares her achievement to date: landing a leading role in the family film titled, Jurassic School

It hasn’t been easy for the Patiño family. The four members left the south and headed west to give Amber’s talents a chance, after winning a prominent talent contest. Amber’s skills shined through and the family made the journey across, to find out if dreams do come true. This is where we catch up with the Patiños, and bring to you, our loyal readers, a rare behind-the-scene look at Hollywood, and the business of child stars—and its effect on the family as a unit.

Amber’s mother, Lindsay Patiño, supports Amber 100% on artistic talents. While her father, William "Bill" Patiño, knows first hand the sacrifices parents make for their children in support of their dreams and aspirations. William left a comfortable life, with a lower cost of living, to help his daughter as best as he can. Yet, reality reminds them that following dreams takes time, money and effort. We interview Bill and get his take on how the move to Hollywood has affected his family because SOHM is committed to bringing you real stories from real people—in this case, the role of parents and their children. 

 
 
PictureThe Youth Issue 2015
In our October/November 2015 “The Youth Issue", Shine On Hollywood Magazine explores the talents of 3 young women of diverse and inspiring backgrounds. In so doing, we are reminded of the true meaning of their stories in its relation to our daily lives.

Our front cover this month is devoted to Hannah Fraser, a ”living Mermaid”, that has fascinated audiences with her ability to immerse herself in the role of a sea creature we can all recognize. Her devotion to acrobatic performances around the world has delighted many. Most importantly however, Hannah Mermaid's strong association and advocacy for the plight of her ocean “friends”, has earned respect by those seeking to make the public aware of the wanton demise of the ocean habitat.

While all of our stories this month revolve around the uplifting testimonials that offer us motivation, we can also appreciate those seeking recognition in an industry with tremendous trials in order to be appreciated. The entertainment business has winners and losers and many times the hard work and talent of those seeking gainful employment can become a lesson in futility.

PictureAmber Patino
We've encountered a youngster, Amber Patiño , that has so many attributes at only 12 years of age, there's no wonder she will become a voice that will be heard around the world, in the not so distant future.  Amber has been blessed by an accumulation of talent that is truly awe inspiring!  A striving actress, a fashion designer, a singer and a painter are just a few of the professions she has been known to excel in at such a young age. Amber's mother has allowed her to blossom, as she is fully aware of her capacity to influence those affected by incongruous circumstances.

PictureKatherine Cooksey
Our last story this month is Miss New York World crown winner, Katherine Cooksey. Katherine has had it rough over the years as she was born with an incurable visual disability and a speech impediment. Even though this condition is considered an obstacle for many, Katherine has risen to the occasion by her steadfast devotion and conviction to assist others by her active involvement in the American Association of People with Disabilities. A natural beauty, she has devoted her time in helping youngsters with afflictions that are similar and much more consequential. Her message to children, is that one can overcome hindrances that are physical in nature by the force of personality and the substance of one's character.

All 3 of our choices for this month's issue, have provided a springboard for us to look beyond the trials many of us face today. They have offered a brief glimpse of their roles and their plans, to live their lives with purpose. We hope you will embrace their stories with your family and friends.

We encourage you to “let them be your motivation.”  

SOHM remains a politics and gossip free publication with its focus on, Real People, Real Stories, from the Arts and Pop Culture Community who make a difference by giving back, and we are delighted to share their heart-felt stories with you. We will continue to provide the industry's foremost creative meeting place with monthly showcases, news, opinions, analysis, and audience feedback.

The upcoming December issue will feature an emphasis on “Top Men Industry Professionals” and as we attend the dazzling holiday parties and dinners here in Tinseltown, I want to pause and give thanks to all the good fortune we have here. From time to time, I am stopped on the street by a passerby who recognizes me from SOHM. They often tell me how much they enjoy the articles and how they appreciate the uplifting stories we share from Hollywood which avoids all the gossip and politics. These interactions, in turn, uplift me and make me so grateful for all our loyal fan base so, from the bottom of my heart, THANK-YOU!

Enjoy,

SOHM Team

Shine On Hollywood Magazine exceeds 17 million global clicks, and asks for pay-it-forward contributions for its formerly free digital publication, to succeed in spreading positive messages from Hollywood to the globe.

August 12, 2014-Hollywood, CA- Shine On Hollywood Magazine (SOHM) shares stories of triumph and success in the entertainment industry, and after releasing two years of free digital issues, the founder and publisher Arnold Garcia is asking for contributions. When asked why, Garcia has several reasons. On it’s two-year anniversary, SOHM has grown globally. Europe, Asia and Latin America have according to views, become addicted to SOHM. There are over 130,000 likes on Facebook, and when Hollywood magazine is searched for on the Internet, SOHM is in the top three hits. To further this momentum funds are now vital to the company.

There are also future plans. There will be an interactive webcast with celebrities, the discovery of global talent, translation into different languages, and interviews with high-end celebrities. All plans need funding. Money is needed to give hope to the undiscovered, to allow celebrities to share their experience to the audience, and to tell the public that Hollywood is not about negativity, he says. Sharing to Garcia means giving and receiving talent between each party. He says that it is what the real Hollywood should be about. 

To Garcia, sharing also means putting out endless hours to create a spark not often seen in Hollywood magazines, the human touch, the passion that commonality exists, and that any individual can thrive and succeed in life. Garcia wants to always show how talent can give back to the community through experience, teaching, and sharing stories of achievement. He passionately believes that for the public to share by contribution is to also feel that human touch.
