'The Conversation': Gabourey Sidibe

Sitting down with the insightful Gabourey Sidibe was a wonderful experience. Being a young woman is difficult enough, but add to that the pressures of Hollywood's spotlight and you have a lot to navigate. What I loved about Gabby is that despite all of the media attention, she's managed to hold onto herself, and more importantly, love herself, finding peace and a wonderful sense of self-confidence in the process.
