26 Reasons Why Mindy Lahiri Is The Perfect Role Model

If Beyoncé Pad Thai Can Do It, So Can You

Though it feels like the show has just returned after a unbearably long hiatus, the season finale of ‘The Mindy Project’ airs tonight on FOX, and we’re bracing ourselves for the wave of emotions we’re sure to experience as we find out the fate of Mindy and Danny’s relationship.

The off-beat comedy is full of eccentric and hilarious characters, but of course this Summer I will be missing the witty and pop-culture-loving Dr. Mindy Lahiri the most. Though she can be narcissistic and ridiculous at times, she’s a confident and successful female with a relatability that is hard to find on TV today. Not only does she have me hysterically laughing every Tuesday, but Mindy Kaling’s alter-ego is someone with positive body image, a love of comedy, many words of wisdom, and a great sense of style-she is admirable.

Here are our favorite Mindyisms that prove she’d make the best role model:
