My Favourite Quote: Amanda Vanelderen, WorkWords

“Confidence is like respect, you have to earn it. Work hard, know your shit, show your shit, and then feel entitled. Listen to no one except the two smartest and kindest adults you know, and that doesn’t always mean your parents. If you do that, you will be fine.” 
– Mindy Kaling, Why Not Me?

“I love the idea that you’re allowed to feel entitled to something if you know you’ve worked hard for it. You don’t have to be born confident, work hard at getting great at what you do, and you earn the right to confidence,” says Amanda.
