Mindy Kailing, creator, writer, editor, and actor of The Mindy Project recently gave an interview for NPR detailing the differences between her personality traits and that of her TV show character, her experiences as a role model, sexism on the job, and balancing her many responsibilities. She gives great advice to both men and women to not only work hard and seek out feedback, but to to also refuse to view oneself as an outsider and to stand firm in your decisions. Rejecting the title of 'pioneer' due to outsider connotations, Kaling sets the tone for how to continue to push yourself even after achieving professional success.
