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,

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.

OUT & ABOUT

SOHM BLOG by Jesse Dorado

September 26, 2013


Dear Friends,

You might not have known but Shine on Hollywood Magazine partnered with the US Global Business Forum for a conference at the Anaheim Convention Center on Saturday, September 7th. The main focus on the all day expo was to promote ‘Global Peace through Global Trade’. This was the 8th Annual Global Business Expo to have taken place in Southern California.

Our publisher, Arnold Garcia and Kevin Kaul of the USGBF joined forces to spotlight the growth of trade throughout the world and the advances of technology which allows the free market to prosper.  We were able to learn the State of California is considered by many at the conference as an active participant in the growth and expansion of burgeoning markets around the world. By example, the African continent has made impressive strides in elevating its goals for an active economy through trade with California. The cooperation of nations and entrepreneurs in this region has accelerated growth in income.  The ‘Global Peace through Global Trade’ initiative offers the opportunity to increase the standard of living in depressed areas.

While there were formidable dignitaries and government figures represented at the conference, Shine on Hollywood Magazine was able to provide a relaxing atmosphere, by its role as the originator of the entertainment for the entire business gathering. Along side with music groups and individual artists, a contingent of notable celebrities lined the Red Carpet. The expo featured groups from divergent locales to meet on a day to foster the camaraderie that ‘Global Peace through Global Trade’ is a concept and a message that can excite the entire world.

By happenstance both Messrs. Garcia and Kaul were met to carry out this year’s conference by the addition of entertainment to the festivities. While the focus of Shine on Hollywood Magazine spotlights the entertainment industry, the desire to include celebrities helped to recognize that everyone from all walks of life profoundly agree, that peace can be promoted when all of us work together.

As an advisor to Mr. Garcia, I am proud of his participation at this conference, even though this event is unique and outside of the parameters of the magazines’ focus on personalities in entertainment. Nonetheless, any effort to elevate the plight of those in poverty, to end the misunderstandings among nations and to seek solutions to bring peace throughout the world, these noteworthy examples were displayed as the basis for the 8th Annual Global Business Expo. With this emphasis in mind, the gathering was indeed a great success!

Thanks Again
