What woman in your life has been the greatest source of inspiration to you? My mother has been my greatest source of inspiration as an unshakable feminist who instilled those same values in me as long as a self confidence that has gotten me through so many hard times with a laugh on my lips, a smile on my face and minimal scars. I owe any happiness and success to her amazing model
What does it mean to be extraordinary? I think to be extraordinary means to persist, persevere and remain resilient with whatever is thrown at you while still producing something strong, powerful and impactful.
How do you hope to inspire the next generation of women? I how to empower by showing examples of strong funny women taking up space in the comedy world and driving conversations, content and laughs in an arena previous dominated by men as the standard.
What motivates you to do your extraordinary work? My desire to be happy and feel at peace drives me to do the work I love.
