Society has continuously emphasized how people can reach their dreams if they never lose sight of it. However, it is not always the case. One may see how some people lost interest in fulfilling their dreams once they realized that they have been looking at their dreams the wrong way.
That is why other individuals start looking for other paths with the hopes of finding the right one. For Melvin Buckley, he found his route when he understood that he was destined for something else.
Born and raised in the South Side of Chicago, Melvin Buckley, otherwise known as King Buckley, had his eyes on being in a basketball court. King was a former University of South Florida basketball player who had his time playing basketball overseas. But when he thought about his life for a moment, he realized that in ten years, he wanted people to remember him as more than just a basketball player.
When King recognized how he is passionate about music, he worked hard to get into the industry. Because of the natural talents that King had already possessed, climbing up the industry was a walk in the park. By the time he mustered his skills, just like any passionate artist, King had already identified his direction. But while he was making music, King was also the one writing the lyrics. With over eight years of writing experience in the industry, he then began to realize how his path did not seem enough to fulfill all his dreams. So he tried to venture into another one.
Apart from singing and writing songs, King has an eye for fashion and trends. Coupled with his stellar writing skills, he decided to start his magazine.
Now, one might ask, why did King venture into something that is practically dead, especially in the information age?
Although some may find it too risky, King believes that his publication, Regime, can be an avenue for people to appreciate passion, fashion, and culture. Admittedly, King accepted the fact of how print is dying in the digital age. That is why he shaping Regime Magazine to produce one special issue every year, highlighting fashion trends of every season each year. Regime Magazine is more like a recap of all the things that have been going on.
Apart from that, the magazine also focuses on giving unique voices to people from all shapes, gender and sizes. That way, he is providing a platform for those who never had the chance to share their innovative ideas through the publication.
Because of his unique approach to publishing stories in his magazine, Regime had expanded its reach to ten international airports all over the world, and now seeks to rebrand in the social media market as a platform for creatives to express themselves in the world of fashion.
With the dreams that King has fulfilled in his lifetime, he never thought about his competition in any of the paths that he took. He always believes that the only competition that he should look out for is himself. After all, it has been his goal to outrank himself every year, to which he consistently succeeds in doing.
