Things I do... and some things I don't.

Was there ever someone, on SNL, that you wanted to play, but you didn’t get a chance to play them?

Girls face so many challenges — people are constantly telling them they can’t do things, they can’t be funny, they can’t run the companies — but my advice is just not to focus on anyone telling you that you can’t do anything, or politics in your situation. Just think about your art, that thing you’re gonna do. I can get caught up, I can spend my entire life doing panels on being a chubby person of color writing a TV show, and it would be useful to some people, but I wouldn’t be writing my TV show. And all my competition, all the white men who are doing the same thing, are not doing that; they’re just getting better and better and better at their job. We want to support each other without distracting each other. Heads down, work really hard, pretend your parents don’t like you and they locked you up in that third room, and just do your work.
