Mindy Kaling’s Dartmouth Commencement Address Balanced Humor And Wisdom

June 11, 2018

Mindy Kaling was sure to infuse a bit of comedy in her commencement address to 2018 Dartmouth College graduates – including to buy a toilet plunger before actually needing one – but she also left her audience with some sage advice.

“I was not someone who should have the life I have now, and yet I do,” Kaling, 38, said. “I was sitting in the chair you are literally sitting in right now and I just whispered, ‘Why not me?’… Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something, but especially not yourself. Go conquer the world. Just remember this: Why not you? You’ve made it this far.”

Kaling is a 2001 Dartmouth graduate.
