Today we’d like to introduce you to Anahi Arellanes.
Anahi, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I have been an entertainment journalist for 19 years, precisely yesterday, June 3, I turned 19. I started in the Latin entertainment industry writing in the entertainment section of LAZOS HIPANOS, the only newspaper in that year at that time (2003) from Minneapolis, Minnesota, from there I kept working collaborating as a correspondent for some Mexican media
I have worked with some Mexican artists such as booking manager getting some specific presentations to television talents in 2014 I launched this magazine for the first time with another name and unfortunately it failed in 2016 I launched it again with another name and failed again I decided to stop in 2018 they invited me to a project from an online radio and I do a show program I did it for a year and on a trip to Las Vegas a conversation with a friend convinced me to re-launch this magazine that has always been an original idea of mine I launched it in March 2019 Zone VIP Magazine is a complete entertainment and entertainment magazine. The concept is to be able to have a Latin artist on the cover and invite him to come to Atlanta. Thank God, it has happened and we have invited great personalities. We have several events bringing together Latin entertainment and the community. people who stand out in Latin entertainment and last March the magazine celebrated its third anniversary and we continue to work with great You have plans to do more events and continue publishing the magazine every month as before, the magazine is physical and digital and it is free for the community.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It has been a lot of struggle to be what we are now, first there were two unsuccessful attempts and it is not easy, we continue to work hard because holding events is expensive and we depend a lot on the sponsors and I have great faith that more and more will come and trust in him. Project.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
My specialty is shows. I have been here for 19 years and I am proud of what I am doing with Zona VIP Magazine right now here in Atlanta this project in these three years we have done great things we have brought recognized personalities to our events with the same magazine I produce some talks called WOMEN OF SUCCESS where I also invite television personalities to be able to contribute something to the women of Atlanta and we continue working on all that.
The crisis has affected us all in different ways. How has it affected you and any important lessons or epiphanies you can share with us?
Yes, and I think we have all learned personally I learned that there are those who, without receiving much, support you from the heart and I verified it with some friends from the media, specifically television artists during covid, our magazine was one of the few that risked holding events with all the care of course and with limited space but my artist friends responded and came to my guest events even when they might risk flying because of covid.
