Raven-Symoné dished to People about struggling with her body image. However, she revealed that her mom helps her deal: 'She'll call me and say, 'You're very pretty,' I'm like, 'Thanks, Mommy!' and that's my confidence for the day.'
On Thursday Ravey will run a Dove-sponsored self-esteem workshop in Cape May, New Jersey:
'It's going to be so much fun. We want to build their self-esteem and give them tools to face the world the next day without us there.' Raven has experienced criticism for her body which she's called 'thick and fabulous': 'People come up to me and have certain words for me, but you know what I do? I say, 'I'm healthy, I exercise, I believe in myself, and I think I'm beautiful,'
You just have to learn how to transform the pressures into something that doesn't soak into you on a personal level. You see it, you breathe past it, you don't let it sink into your self-esteem. At the end of the day I'll call my best friend and yell and scream and get it out. And the next morning, it's out of my system.'
