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.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hollywood, California, August 12, 2013, Shine On Hollywood Magazine is proud to announce the release of a special magazine dedicated to its 1st anniversary. "Reflection On Our Biggest Celebration" issue is dedicated to the most impressive online publications to date.

Over 12 months ago, Arnold Garcia, founder, CEO of A&G Entertainment Productions (AGEP) launched his first E-Magazine, Shine On Hollywood Magazine (SOHM). After a successful launch of his first digital magazine in July 2012, SOHM has been in the spotlight. With the release of the July/August 2013 issue (August issue front cover featuring Mara New “Top Indie Film Industry Professionals’); we’re proud to announce the one-year anniversary of a monthly online publication where exclusive interviews with celebrities and industry insiders have provided exceptional 'tips' for our readers to use.

SOH Vice President Jesse Dorado mentions that in its first year, 'Shine On Hollywood has earned a reputation for in-depth, intelligent discussions with personalities that have the ability to offer an honest perspective.'

SOHM has gained a devoted following since its beginning in July of 2012. The magazine has grown from 1 to 25 countries obtaining millions of hits and has documented an astounding array of interviews. 

“Our publication has offered great stories over the past 12 months due to the desire from our readers to devote our efforts in avoiding gossip, violence and negativity. There are members of the Hollywood community that seek recognition in large part, to gain publicity for their current projects. In so doing, we at SOH are not afraid to ask specific personal question which enlightens the importance of the project or the life of the individual in question.. The celebrities and high-end professionals we interview trust our ability to represent true and factual accounts of their circumstances as we don’t twist their stories or quote them out of context. Some of these professionals have been inspirational to us during tough times in our lives, so it’s a pleasure to get to know them personally and find out what makes them tick as individuals.” Mentions SOH Founder, Arnold Garcia.

Christine Aldridge, SOHM's Director of Copy Editing / Staff Writer, said, “There are lots of publications out there that will give you all the latest news or gossip on the superstars, but virtually no others that focus on the real people who make up the heart and backbone of the entertainment industry.”

There are numerous young professionals who can take notes from our magazine for their success! That's what Shine On Hollywood Magazine is all about -  to share the “Real People, Real Stories” in Hollywood by presenting the heartfelt journeys and endeavors of the entertainment industry professionals who are changing lives throughout the industry worldwide. Giving back to students, young artists, professionals and the general public in the arts and pop culture is a byproduct of the magazine's content.
