“Be Yourself” Cover Star: Dove Cameron
Liv and Maddie star Dove Cameron is BYOU Magazine’s featured cover story for our ‘Be Yourself’ issue (Summer 2016). In this popular Disney Channel show, Dove brilliantly stars as BOTH Liv and Maddie. Liv and Maddie are twins, but each stay uniquely true to themselves; Liv as an excitable girly-girl actress and Maddie as a laid-back basketball jock.
However, our choice to feature Dove goes way beyond her ability to portray authenticity as an actress (which she also demonstrates in the Disney Channel movies Cloud 9, Descendants, and eventually in Descendants 2 premiering in 2017)!
In real life, Dove is a powerful example of someone living life as her true self. She often shares openly on social media with powerful comments and no-makeup selfies, but as you’ll read in our exclusive interview with her, Dove shares some amazing wisdom she’s gained during her 20-year journey; one that’s taken her from being a bullied misfit growing up in the state of Washington who then lost a parent in her early teens, to becoming one of young Hollywood’s most popular actresses who is comfortable with who she is.
Here’s an excerpt from Dove’s BYOU Magazine interview…
“There is no good that will ever, ever, ever come out of pretending to be somebody you’re not—except for discovering that you really can’t pretend to be somebody that you’re not! If you feel the need to change who you are for the people you surround yourself with, then you’re with the wrong people. Even if you feel drawn to them, it’s never going to work out. Surround yourself with people who can see you for what you are, but that won’t be everybody. I went through that, I was like, ‘I can make anybody see who I am, if I just spend enough time with them.’ But you don’t have enough time in your life to convince everybody of who you are. You only have time to work on yourself and spend time with people that get you from the beginning. You can’t force anything to happen. To find a match, like a friend or eventually a boyfriend or husband, it just has to happen naturally. Don’t force yourself to be somebody you’re not and put yourself through that turmoil; you’ll always find yourself coming up short and being sad, lonely, and confused as to why people don’t get the you that you really are.” ~ Dove Cameron, exclusively for BYOU Magazine
