Dove Cameron surprised a fan and helped teach her how to cope with anxiety on Thursday, September 14. The Descendants 2 star — who took a break from filming alongside Jennifer Aniston to call in to On Air With Ryan Seacrest — helped make the latest #KIISCampus happen with 14-year-old fan Maya.
“I reached out to her on Instagram asking her how she deals with anxiety and how she makes friends in Hollywood because that’s something that I have been struggling with,” Maya shared with OAWRS before being surprised on the phone by Dove.
Dove, who has spoken out about how to handle anxiety in the past, shared with Maya that you just need to remember you won’t always feel that way.
“I don’t think there’s any human in the world that escapes pressure and anxiety,” Dove told Maya. “I think the goal is to remember that sensation of coming out of a darker time in your life … [and] remind yourself ‘I always come out of it and I need to not let myself forget that.’”
Dove added that its important to be open to your emotions and not ignore them.
