Early life: A performer’s DNA

Raven was raised apparently an only child in Maryland, by parents who were evidently supportive of her early interests in the entertainment industry, having funded her acting and dancing classes. She became a regular at the Evangel Cathedral in Mitchellville, plus taking ballet, jazz and tap-dancing lessons as a youth program member. She was also an avid outdoorswoman in early elementary school, having spent time camping with the Elks Camp Burrett in Maryland, and Oak Crest Day Camp in New Jersey. Goodwin attended Lyndon Hill Elementary School in Prince George’s County, Maryland, from where she matriculated in 2010. Thanks to her enviable reading proficiency, she had spent some time on the school’s morning news team. Having become an established actress before it was time for college, she never enrolled into one.

Her first but uncredited camera performances (of unspecified characters) bolstered the pilot episode of “The Contender,” and a few episodes of “The Corner,” released in 2000.
