"I actually read an e-mail the other day: 'Yeah, we watch That's So Raven, but I only know her as Olivia. I'll only know her as that.' I think that's fabulous. If I didn't have that, I don't think I'd be where I am today," she says.
Raven was a little too young at the time to understand the enormous impact the show had on the world—she says just loved seeing herself on TV. "And the story goes, I said, 'Mom, I want to do what Rudy does. I want to be with her.' So I was with her, and I was excited when I was a kid."
Raven's latest film—College Road Trip, starring Martin Lawrence and Donny Osmond—is available on DVD. Her latest CD, Raven-Symone, will is available in stores. Raven also helps inspire kids to create their own meals and crafts on her website, ravensymonepresents.com.
