Popular Stars of the 90s Have The Right Mindset!

With the arrests, addictions, and shaved heads of some of our most popular stars from the last two decades, it’s fairly uncommon to hear about the ones playing a beneficial part in society. However, these stars are not rare at all. When the limelight isn’t focused on breakdowns and break ups, there are in fact many former television stars making a positive impact. 

We all remember the adorable DJ Tanner from the popular 1990s sitcom, Full House. After her countless lectures with Uncle Jesse and Uncle Joey, Candace Cameron-Bure has now been able to relay these lessons into her life after the Tanners. Bure is the author of New York Times Bestseller Reshaping it All. The novel is a motivational tool for women to embrace a healthier lifestyle both physically as well as spiritually. Alongside being a devoted wife and mother of three, Bure maintains her positive image by providing motivational speeches on love, family, and faith and acting as a role model to women of all ages. 

The actors from the hit children’s show The Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers have all moved on since the series ended in 1995. For the original black power ranger, Walter E. Jones, the end of the show only meant an open door for countless opportunities. Jones, who participated in the 1992 Barcelona Summer Olympics, went on to become a World Champion salsa dancer and now producer. As a child in Detroit, Jones often fell victim to bullying. It is because of this he is a lively advocate for anti-bullying and shares his stories to fight the terrible trend on BullyVille.com. In a recent interview, Jones mentioned one of his closest similarities with his character from Power Rangers, “Zack and I are both protective of the underdog. We don’t like seeing people get bullied.” When he isn’t spending time with his two children, Jones travels America sharing his story and promoting his anti-bullying movement as well as encouraging students to work hard towards their future. 

The sassy, cute little sister Ashley from Will Smith’s infamous Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Tatyana Ali, has also broken the child star mold. Not only is she a Harvard graduate but she can also add producer and activist to her list of skills. Whether she is in front of the camera or behind the scenes producing, she is known as a very intelligent, proactive woman. Ali is most passionate about America’s youth and their education. During the presidential campaign of 2008, Ali made it a point to travel around to college campuses teaching students the importance of voting. In 2011, BET named Ali as their “Young, Gifted and Black” woman of the year. 

As much as the media tends to focus on the antics of Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes, it’s a relief to know not all television stars from the 1990’s are running wild, rather quite a few are making a positive impact in today’s society.
