Tamera Mowry-Housley realized her voice was "important" when she hosted The Real.
While discussing her new memoir with Essence, Mowry-Housley shared that she struggled to speak for herself in her early years.
It wasn't until she started hosting Fox's The Real that the actress realized she had a voice and opinions that mattered.
"For at least three years, every time I heard 'This Is Our Time' I thought I was going to throw up! I wasn't used to speaking my voice," she shared. “I have always spoken the words of others. As an actress, I would say anything that is on this page.”
Mowry-Housley continued: "I spoke at church. I've always spoken about my faith. That was easy. But I've never spoken about my life or lessons I've learned other than my faith. Not my dating life, my sex life, or my opinion of other people. It was very new and scary for me. but in that process I realized, “Whoa. I actually have a say and I shouldn't be scared.'"

The Real helped Mowry-Housley see "the power of vulnerability."
Although Tamera Mory-Housley was a bit scared of opening up to viewers while co-hosting The Real, she realized just how impressive her voice really is while on the show.
"Every day I revealed something about myself, and there was a slogan about whether I wanted it or not," the actress explained.
"But I realized the power of being vulnerable, and what I mean by 'power' is that you then resonate with people. For me, I don't just do things to do them. Not for self-aggrandizement. That never felt comfortable.”

She added: "The core of what I do is I always want to encourage and inspire. I don't just say things to hear myself talk."
