All should aspire to have the confidence of Issa Rae accepting an award

While accepting the emerging entrepreneur award at the event, Rae delivered a speech that should inspire anyone with an ounce of self-doubt to stop wasting their time on that nonsense. Though she began with a disclaimer that she was about to say the opposite of everything she'd normally say in a speech of this nature, Rae powered forward with an unapologetic ode to knowing your self-worth. "Entrepreneur means I did that s–t by myself," Rae said, to a laughing audience, according to video from the event. Those who come after her, she said, "need to bow down." "I'm closing all doors behind me, so if you didn't make it in, oops, your bad," she joked. Instead of heaping praise on a long lists of agents, managers and execs, Rae read names and added "y'all some suckers." To executives at HBO, where her hit comedy "Insecure" airs, she said, "keep running me my money. Please and thank you."IRead More – Source
