Tia Mowry Gives Her Regards
Written by Urban Mogul Life on February 23, 2011
Tia Mowry looks Fresh on the cover of Regard Magazine. In the issue she talks about education, growing up and relationships.
On growing up and collegeI think I was able to thrive because my parents focused on me living a normal life. I went to college at Pepperdine University, and traveled the world. I stayed out of trouble. I never snuck into parties when I was under age, etc…I also have amazing friends that kept me grounded. The friends that I have are not “yes” friends. I have known them before I was “famous” and if I was to get out of line, they would put me right back in line. I have friends and family who are honest with me, and they could care less about Hollywood.
On the importance of Education
My mother always told me when I was growing up, that the key to success is an education. In our house, it was, and still is, a priority. College taught me a lot about myself. Not only is it a place you should go to and figure out what you want to pursue in life, it is also a place to grow as an adult. It is a great practicing ground for discipline. You have deadlines, homework, speeches, and volunteer work to complete. These tactics build character. At least that is what it did for me, and I am so happy I finished and graduated.
On balancing her relationship and career
Balance is a big goal of mine. To be honest, I am still figuring it out. What I strive to do now, is of course make time for the people I love and hold so dear. If you don’t work into a relationship, the relationship will die. I know that reality. So with my family, husband, and friends, I make it a point to spend quality time with them. In any relationship, communication is important. With the fans, that is why I love twitter. It is an outlet that allows me to converse one on one with my fans. See what they like, why they don’t like, etc. I also have an opportunity to show them what I have been up to.
