This Magazine is truly a labor of love. Almost 3 years ago now
I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby girl. It was one of the
most terrifying experiences of my life, holding her for the first
time because I was suddenly struck with the enormity of the
responsibility ahead of me. Being entrusted with the life of another
human being is a privilege that should not be taken lightly.
It was at that moment that I realized there were many things I've dreamed of doing in my life, but never did. The truth is that I am an artist through and through. I sing, dance, act, write, take photographs, design gowns, make jewelry, and so much more. I want to record albums and act in films and on television shows. I want to walk the red carpet, win a Grammy, win an Academy Award and a Na Hoku Hanohano Award. The possibilities are endless, but fear has always stopped me dead in my tracks.
We hope that you will join this adventure and our FAMEily!!! ~ Rachel Cruz
The reason I've decided to share all of this is because I don't want my daughter to have this same fear instilled in her. I don't want her to grow up being too scared to accomplish her goals and to be left with regret or a void that never seems to be filled. So I decided that the best way to show her that she can do anything she wants, is to lead by example.
I have decided to go on a journey accomplishing one goal at a time. This same passion that drives me to go after what seems to be the most impossible dreams, has also moved me to be mindful of the plight of other artists out there. I know what it feels like to live constantly with the desire to do more with my life, but not know how or where to start.
Every artist in each of these four industries has a story. Their story is the heartbeat of F.A.M.E. and the artists themselves, our readers and every dreamer out there, make up the HEART of this publication!
We want to hear your stories and we want F.A.M.E. Magazine to be the platform you use to express your hearts and share your art. Our Mission is to bridge the gap between the artist, our readers and other professionals in each of the four industries of Fashion, Arts, Music and Entertainment!
