It’s How You Play The Game
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.
