Children’s Letters to Raven-Symone II

Alt text

Here’s another batch of e-mails sent to symone.raven@gmail.com, an address that does NOT go to singer/actress Raven-Symone, but that a lot of people seem to think does. (For background, read this previous blog entry.)

CHILDREN’S LETTERS TO RAVEN-SYMONE

Nov. 15, 2005:
Hey Raven,

I think you’re a great actress, and also a great singer. I love all your songs! I’ve almost seen every episode of “That’s So Raven”. Here is my fan site I made for you. It isn’t up right know, but it should be by your birthday in December http://www.Raven-Symone-Hottie.piczo.com. If you have time can you go to my site. If you don’t that is fine ’cause I know that your really busy. By the way I sent you a birthday card, I was wondering if you got it? Please e-mail me back. It would really be cool. Hope to talk to you soon, maybe. [emoticon that seems to indicate "maybe...? hopefully...?"]
-One of your biggest fans Sam!

[This next one makes me kind of sad, and then it also makes me laugh. I'm sorry.]

Hey Raven,
I’m one of your specail Fans because i have had a difficult road in life. When my Mom was already diolated they didn’t realise that i wasn’t breathing until it was already to late to do a c section. The cord was wrapped around my Neck 2 times until i was blue in the face and my foot was in my mom’s ribcage. So they pushed me up the birth canal and poped my leg back in place from where it was located. My Leg still hurts to this day (Sometimes it acts up). I wa s diganosed with Slight cp because their is a curve in my back. I was also diganosed with Learning disability because i can’t learn like the normal person and it takes me longer. I have been told by Millions that i can’t do this or i won’t amount to nothing. I never listned to them infact because of state laws here in florida i’m trying to get my ged. My Dad is just a complete not their parent that Molested myself and Kristen(My half Sister) My dad also gets away with not paying his support in the state of Texas. My Mom also about 6 years ago nearly died because she suffered 3 major Strokes. My Half sister really likes u. But i do the most because i remeber you as the little Girl that has played in cosby. Raven your the best person that i like watching on The That’s so Raven Show and your the Funniest. I would really like to hear from you and hopefully be really good friends.
Sincerly Yours

Dear Raven,
I seen you at a concert near Cincinnati, Ohio at Paramounts Kings Island right around Aug. I still have the concert tickets. Let me tell you about myself. I’m 10, my name is Mariah, I have two loving parents and a loving brother. I have brown hair, brown eyes, and my birthday is on May 4. When I was at the concert I was going to ask a question, but you didn’t pick me. Can you mail me back if I ask it? I sure hope so. If you did not preform what would you do? Oh yea I forgot. How did you become a singer? I want to know because I am really really really good at singing and either want to be a makeup artist or a singer.

Sincerely,
Mariah [last name withheld]

Raven?

I found this email address and I hope its a real one. My name is Christopher [last name withheld], 13, and I live in Bentonville, Arkansas. I just want to let you know how much of an inspiration you are to me. Since I was 5, I had always dreamed of acting in front of millions of people and singing on Disney Channel. When your sitcom, That’s So Raven, premiered, I knew right then that WOULD become an actor. Every day, I watch any show that you appear in to see how you act and how you became a star. I’ve watched so many, sometimes it feels like I know you in real life. Every time I see you, it’s like you are giving me a message to keep trying and to never give up. I told my mom that the ultimate Christmas present is to hear back from Raven. I would do anything to be in your shoes for one day and to sing with you at Disney World. Could you give me “words of wisdom” on how to be seen and become an actor? I could really use some.

Thanks so much for all you do,
Christopher [last name withheld]

    I am just wondering if you have actually replied to any of these. My favorite on this page either has to be the kid with the terrible life, or the girl who wants Raven to print the e-mail out, and mail it back to her.

  2. Portia Says:

    I wish every kid who wrote a LtR-S would email back the same day with the addendum of “I HATE YOU.”
