The 10 Fictional Female TV Characters Who Should Be Your Real Life Role Models

By  | 



Television is my best friend. Like, I watch so much television that I don't have trouble putting myself into the shoes of my favorite characters and seeing what happens. While scouring my favorite characters for perfect choices, I realized that a majority of my choices shared one common characteristic: confidence. When it comes to my gal pals: the more unabashedly confident as well as strong and hilarious… the better. ‘Cause let's be real, most of us could stand to be a little more confident and a little more hilarious… and these fictional characters show us the way to a better life.

In another world, I could really see Mindy and I being best friends. We have a lot in common: we are both budding feminists, we're both the life of every party (read: gif above) and we both can't quite understand the logistics of shower sex. Mindy Kaling, if you're reading this, I'll “settle” for being your best friend instead.
