A preview of what’s inside this issue!


Tywanna Smith

When Cuba Gooding Jr. screams “Show me the money!” at Tom Cruise in the movie “Jerry Maguire,” he is playing a fictional NFL wide receiver who’s worried about his finances. He’s got a family to support, and he knows his superstardom is only going to last five, maybe ten years.

It’s a fictional story, but it’s pretty close to the realities of life for professional athletes. We might scoff when we hear that another athlete has filed for bankruptcy. But the sad fact is that a majority of NFL and NBA players are drafted in their late teens or early twenties, and they’re often ill-equipped to handle their skyrocketing finances. What’s more, sudden millionaires tend to attract vultures. And when their careers end, they’re often left with nothing but debt.

Tywanna Smith was 14 when Gooding won the Oscar for that role. She’d been playing basketball for years, and was starting to realize she could be a college scholarship contender. Her cousin, Marcus Brown, had just been drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers that year. Smith knew more about pro sports than most kids her age.


Tony Chen

“Great art is the outward expression of an inner life in the artist.” If legendary American painter Edward Hopper’s quote is true, then musician Tony Chen seems to be on the right track. He’s also on something of a mission.

The young composer has won numerous awards and acclaim, and he credits his success to his spiritual beliefs and self-exploration. Born in Beijing, China, he started piano lessons at an early age mainly because his parents made him. He didn’t enjoy it until he started tinkering with an electronic keyboard. His interest soared when he combined his keyboard sounds with the seemingly limitless potential of computer technology.

Studying music at the University of Huddersfield in central England, Chen honed his skills by studying orchestration, conducting, opera, and scoring for film and screen. He polished his English language skills and developed his singing talents while working as a freelance Mandarin voice over artist and coach.
