There are so many fantastic reasons why Amy Poehler would be the perfect BFF. I can't even begin to tell you how many times I've watched interviews of her on YouTube and thought, "I just want to be friends with her!" I know I can't be alone in that, right? She's a strong woman who has worked hard for all that she's got, providing tons of laughs along the way. Check out the cool reasons as to why Amy Poehler would be the perfect BFF.
1. She's Hilarious
I mean, must I really explain this? Amy's a brilliant comedian. From Saturday Night Live to starring as Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation, it's clear that Amy lives her life to make others laugh. She's totally fearless in her approach to comedy and it is such a treat to watch her work. Can you imagine all the laughs you two would share if she was your best friend? This is just one of the reasons why Amy Poehler would be the perfect BFF.
2. She Empowers Young Women
Amy has her own movement targeted at empowering young women. The movement, called "Smart Girls at the Party," is a network for "sharing uplifting stories about women who do incredible things for the world in every area, from politics to art and music." My favorite portion is her web series called "Ask Amy," where she answers questions from young girls. She speaks as though she's talking to a long-time friend and I love that about her! Can you imagine all the awesome advice she would give you?
3. She's Political
Let's not forget that Amy spends most of her time as Leslie Knope, councilwoman of Pawnee, Indiana. She loves having a government job! She shares her words of wisdom with her office (which is always hilarious to see) even though her co-workers might not love their job as much as she does.
4. She's a Great Role Model
Amy's strong and successful. Every young woman should have Amy as a role model. I love that she's never been the type to be in Hollywood scandals. She just lives her life being her funny self and it's great.
5. She's a Cool Mom
Amy seems like the type of mom who'll embarrass her children and love every second of it. LOL! Her children will grow up in a house full of laughs and that's going to be such an amazing childhood. She always looks so awesome walking down the street with her kids. P.S. how AMAZING does she look for being a mother of two?!
6. Her Sense of Style
If you've kept up with her red carpet style, you'd know that Amy always looks incredible. She always looks sophisticated yet totally sexy - something we all strive for. Am I right, ladies?! Even when she's not all glammed up for red carpet events, her street style is just as awesome.
7. She Doesn't Care What Anyone Thinks
Amy's not afraid of looking like a fool in front of people. She does what she wants and embraces her quirky ways! That's a great thing for young girls to look up to. As long as you feel comfortable with who you are, who cares what anyone else thinks? Remember when she hosted the Golden Globes with Tina Fey?! They were just being themselves and they were hilarious!
Well, there you have it. These are just seven out of many awesome reasons why Amy Poehler would be the most perfect best friend to have! What's your favorite thing about Amy? What kind of BFF activities would you want to do with her?
