We’re huge fans of Carrie Fisher at InnovateHer, and not just because of her portrayal of Leia Organa in one of our favourite movie franchises, but because she came across as such an honest and humorous person who encouraged others to be nothing but themselves.

Carrie and Gary Fisher

It’s because of our admiration for Carrie that we wanted to share ten of our favourite quotes from her:

Carrie Fisher quote - Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What's important is the action. You don't have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.
