Of course, it helps that she’s enjoying herself along the way. “I am excited to have fun, first and foremost, because I have learned having fun is very, very important. And I’m excited to create something that I’m really, really proud of, to be honest,” Singh said. “I don’t only want to make a dope show with dope guests and make it really funny. I want to be really proud of it, and I can say that we’re doing that right now.”
As Singh tells it, her mission is crystal clear. “Listen, my purpose is very, very simple,” she said. “It is to create a path so that two can go to four can go to six or eight. That is my sole purpose, and I have no other goal. These are my goals: having fun, being proud, paving a path.”
Mission accomplished, we’d say. And right on time.
