Mindy Kaling

No matter the character, Mindy Kaling’s uproarious comedic chops have always gotten laughs. Kaling went from a supporting role as Kelly Kapoor on NBC’s “The Office” to writing, producing, and starring in “The Mindy Project.” This quote appears in the comedian’s 2015 collection of humorous essays titled “Why Not Me?,” her second “New York Times” bestseller, after 2011's "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?" Though Kaling is referring here to overcoming her own struggles with body image, her words show the importance of confidence. Kaling admits that self-doubt is wasted energy, and “[her] heart is reserved for way more important things.” It’s so valuable to be proud of who we are, and to let our defining traits — quirks and all — shine through.
