Dove is encouraging women everywhere to help boost a girl’s self-esteem by spending an #HourWithHer. Rebecca Sugar, illustrator and creator of Cartoon Network’s acclaimed Steven Universe, pursued her own body image journey through her work. By creating a colorful cast of characters that take on important themes like self-esteem, body image, and diversity, Rebecca’s show shares fun and relatable ways for kids to feel heard and see their differences celebrated.
As an Emmy® nominated creator, Rebecca wants to help young girls use their imagination to form positive images for themselves. She sat down with Giada, an 11-year-old aspiring illustrator who’s using creativity as a way to develop her confidence and unique beauty. In their inspiring #HourWithHer, Rebecca shared her journey and helped Giada use her imagination to define beauty for herself.
Rebecca and Giada worked together to bring a new self-esteem superhero to life. G-Wiz has the power to create empathy in bullies. With her magical pencil, she sketches the inner beauty of others so they can see it, too.
Rebecca and Giada worked together on G-Wiz at Cartoon Network Studios.
