Many people would choose a family member or at least someone they personally know when it comes to talking about influential people in their life. For me, I have many people who have influenced me in my 17 years, but I want to talk about Tina Fey and how she has contributed to my development as a person. Many know Tina Fey as a comedian on Saturday Night Live; however, she is also a writer, actress, and very successful woman. I have been told that my sense of humor and personality resembles hers, and that is the greatest compliment I have ever received. For a good period of time, I have admired Tina Fey and that admiration has been a large influence in my life. Tina Fey, despite her multiple awards and recognitions, has not always been famous and popular. The thing that inspires me the most about her is her ability to bounce back from any negativity or failures without hesitation. Her independent and strong personality, along with her wittiness, are what make me stronger than ever. Before I knew of her, I was already an independent, opinionated, and witty person, but seeing someone famous who resembles who I am has made me more confident than ever. Since she became well known, I have had extreme self-esteem and am extremely confident in who I am and for this reason, I have to thank Tina Fey, even though she has no idea what she has done for me.
