It’s How You Play The Game

Red Magazine - - Editor's Note | Contents - @ri­arec­om­mends

We all have our own paths to forge, whether we are aware of it or not. I can hon­estly say I don’t know what my pur­pose in life is, but I do know that try­ing to make peo­ple and my sur­round­ings more aes­thet­i­cally pleas­ing makes me happy. At a very young age, our cover sub­ject Chris­tine Al­lado knew she loved to sing, and now (still at a very young age), she is ful­fill­ing that dream. Dur­ing the shoot, I was amazed by her pro­fes­sion­al­ism. She came on time, with ex­tra clothes in tow (in case what we pulled out didn’t work) and such a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude that the shoot was a happy breeze.

I went home happy about our magazine and whom we fea­ture be­cause we put the spot­light on peo­ple with in­ter­est­ing sto­ries. Not be­cause they have a large In­sta­gram fol­low­ing (that rarely en­sures that their cov­ers will sell any­way) or they were born to such priv­i­lege, but be­cause they are win­ning in the game called life. Most im­por­tantly, we fea­ture them be­cause they in­spire.

I of­ten ask my kids what they want to be when they grow up. I re­mem­ber my son say­ing he wanted to be a clown. Sur­prised, I asked him why, and he said it’s be­cause he wants to make peo­ple laugh.

At the end of the day, I hope to show you a way to live fully and hope Red gets to be part of that jour­ney.
