Being "a warrior" is a state of mind, and nobody does it better than Kerry Washington, aka Olivia Pope. Her interview with Lena Dunham for the April issue of Marie Claire really struck a cord with me, especially her response to this question:
Lena Dunham: "What do you want to make very clear to your daughter as she grows up...?"
Kerry Washington: "I just want her to know that she's heard. Really heard, because I feel like that is what we all really want. When I think about any of the missteps in my life that I've made, all of which I'm grateful for, it's because I just so wanted to be truly seen and heard for who I am and was afraid I wasn't or wouldn't be. I see you, I'm with you as you are."
