Today’s Sheen Magazine “Beauty of Giving” spotlight is actress and comedian, Cocoa Brown. We fell in love with her on OWN’s For Better Or For Worse, BET ComicView and The Single Moms Club. Recently, Sheen Magazine sat down with the actress to find out what is her beauty of giving.

What is your way of giving back during the holiday season or throughout the year?

I mentor young girls. Now a days we live in a day in age where we don’t celebrate girls who are smart, brainy or innovators. We only talk about the beauty now. I mentor them to let them know they can achieve everything. Your body will fade your brain in forever.

Why is it important to use your platform to impact the lives of others in a positive manner?

I believe it is my responsibility to breath life into young girls. There is little girls who are watching me, girls who see themselves in me. I give them hope that a brown skin girl whose not a size 2 from Newport News, Virginia can make it and so can you.

Why is it important to spread love on a daily?

We are living in a time where it is popularly to hate on someone. I think that is a tragedy because love is more powerful thats hate. When we love and embrace each other for all of our differences it makes us stronger as a nation.

What message do you hope to convey through your way of giving? 

Your worth is not determined by what you see in the mirror. Your worth is more determined by your heart, your soul, by what you give back to your community and to the ones that you love. You are powerful, you are a woman, you are more than the physical. Love and embrace every part of yourself.
