Padma Lakshmi Doesn't Spend Her Day Thinking About The Color Of Her Skin

"I don't get up in the morning thinking, 'I'm an Indian' or 'I'm a woman' or 'I'm a person of color' or 'I'm this or I'm that.' I get up thinking, 'Alright, what can I do to accomplish what I find interesting in the world?' I never start from a place of my ethnicity or my gender, I start from a place of ambition and just curiosity about the world I live in and enthusiasm for being active, mentally and physically."
