There is something about a woman with a sense of humor. Which you will see in the next several installments of people who inspire me. Amy Poehler is the most wonderful sort of woman. She can make fun of herself, but she can also stand up for herself. She is a mother, yet she has a career where she has to work hard every day. She’s hilarious, but she’s also serious. It’s something that would be nearly impossible to duplicate in anyone else.
I love her because I love Leslie Knope. I love her because I used to wake my sister at night when I would stay up in secret to watch Saturday Night Live and laugh out loud at the Weekend Update when it was hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. I love her because she runs “Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls,” which is a wonderful source of information for young (and more mature) women. I love her because she is everything that I aspire to be.
Why do you love Amy Poehler?
