Actress and businesswoman Raven Symone turns 26 today.

In 2011 we saw the former teen star slim down and become a woman at the helm of her own career. But we first fell in love with her as Olivia, the angelic-faced curious stepdaughter of Lisa Bonet on the beloved sitcom “The Cosby Show.”

At 26, this young Hollywood power broker has lots to be proud of. Raven has starred and produced several TV shows, and released four albums. And with all her success she still manages to find time to give back. She recently teamed up with Steve Harvey for the Disney Dreamers Academy this summer in Orlando, Florida and visited a low self-esteem camp in Arkansas.

Up next for Raven is “Tinker Bell: Secret of the Wings” which will be an animated film to be released in 2012.

Join us in wishing Raven-Symone a happy 26th birthday!
