  • I'd been told I was too old, too fat and too ethnic to

  • try and make it into America at 28.

  • I feel like they don't say that to men.

  • But I said it to me.

  • I'm very

  • South Asian.

  • Deep down.

  • And I wanted to be a doctor and that was my plan

  • for my life.

  • Now I got hit by a car and I was unable to walk

  • for over a year because I hurt my back pretty

  • badly. And my brother had to take me to the

  • toilet every day and there's something about that

  • it sort of gifts you perspective and you realize

  • that you shouldn't be taking yourself too

  • seriously and you shouldn't be taking life for

  • granted. And that kind of changed my outlook on

  • the rest of my life.

  • I was an English teacher at 21.

  • A man walked up to me in a pub, started a

  • conversation with me, told me he thought I was

  • funny and he told me about some big audition to

  • become a TV presenter.

  • I'd never wanted to be on television.

  • I'd never done anything, I had no experience.

  • At first I said no.

  • And then he said it was 1,000 pounds a day and I

  • was like, "Yes, please. I'll

  • have that email."

  • And overnight I became a TV presenter on one of

  • the biggest TV shows in the United Kingdom, which

  • I was wholly unprepared for and didn't really

  • become good at for like another year, which was

  • mortifying to have to learn that publicly on

  • television. But I did it anyway.

  • I sucked it up and I took the criticism and I

  • kept going.

  • And after about three years of doing

  • that, that started to go well, I was restless.

  • I want to try something new.

  • I got offered a job at BBC Radio 1 as a radio DJ,

  • which is an incredibly hard job because you are

  • driving the desk all by yourself while speaking

  • at the same time, counting down to a live clock

  • and you have the whole of the BBC at your

  • fingertips, which is petrifying and all of the

  • cuss words, all of them, they're just like

  • rolling around your brain and you just want to

  • scream one of them live.

  • I ended up making history as the first woman to

  • ever host the official chart on BBC Radio 1 on

  • its 60 years on air.

  • I was the first and that was an amazing

  • moment of privilege and then, after about two

  • years of doing that, I was restless again.

  • I had a health scare.

  • I found a lump in my breast.

  • They make you wait a week to find out if it's

  • cancerous and it wasn't.

  • And so I decided that I would make a "F--- it"

  • list. I did.

  • When I got the biopsy results back and they were

  • clear, I decided to just take the leap and book a

  • one-way ticket to Los Angeles with no visa, no

  • contacts and not enough money to do that.

  • But I did it anyway because, really, what do you

  • have to lose other than your life?

  • So I did leave my relationship and my entire

  • career that I built in the United Kingdom.

  • I came anyway and my first audition was for

  • "The Good Place" and Mike Schur gave me the job

  • because he's a very strange man who gave a

  • complete novice, who'd never acted before, a job.

  • I had been Titania on stage when I was

  • nine years old at school so I'm not entirely

  • without experience.

  • Thank you very much.

I'd been told I was too old, too fat and too ethnic to
