Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World has covered everything from first crushes to religion to autism, and star Rowan Blanchard says it’s the show’s wide-ranging topics that have left her most proud.

“If there’s one thing I want people to take away from our show, I want it to feel inclusive and feel like anybody can watch it and somehow identify,” Blanchard shares in the video above.

Among the upcoming episodes Blanchard is excited for audiences to see is one that touches on a conversation — establishing your own belief — that hits close to home. The 14-year-old actress recently shared her hope that she would inspire other teens to find their voice and express their opinions, regardless of what they may be.

Watch the video to find out Blanchard’s all-time favorite episode and to hear more about “Girl Meets Belief” which airs Friday at 8:30 E.T. on Disney Channel.
