Raven was born in Georgia, in a family of Lydia and Christopher B. Pearman, descendants of African and Native Americans. Symone has made her first public appearances as a child model at the age of 2. At that time the girl worked with Ford Models agency and posed for the various advertisements, including Jell-O, Cool Whip and Ritz crackers. Although the toddler’s salary was not somewhat impressive and did not significantly increase Raven Simone net worth, at the time it helped her parents to support the family.
In the late 80s her mother took a three-year-old Olivia to the audition for Cosby’s movie The Ghost. Although a girl did not match the requirements due to her age, Bill was so impressed with a girl’s charm he found her a small role in his show. She made her debut as Bill’s granddaughter Olivia in the opening of the 6th season and remained in the show as long as it was aired. Raven made her movie debut as the younger version of Halle Berry in a film Queen: The Story of an American Family. In 1999 Raven received her first major role in a comedy Dr. Dolittle. The film became a real hit at the box office and grossed a total $294 millions. In 2001 Symone appeared on the second part of this movie which grossed $176 million. The salary for roles in Dolittle was the first major contribution into Raven Symone net worth.
In 2003 raven started filming in a supernatural teen sitcom television series That’s so Raven, which was aired on Disney’s Chanel until 2007. The show was extremely successful among the younger audience and was nominated for Emmy’s in 2005 and 2007. In 2004 Raven released her third solo album entitled This Is My Time. It looks like this third attempt to establish herself as a mature recording artist was successful for Raven. The album featured such hits as “Bump”, “What Is Love” and “Mystify”. It debuted at No. 50 on Billboard and went on to sell 235 thousand copies. The sales of this album are responsible for a good bulk of Raven-Symone net worth.
