My obsession with Kate McKinnon is real. Like, really real. It all started when my sister had me watch one of her Saturday Night Live sketches in which she plays a Russian woman named Olya Povlatsky on the Weekend Update. From that moment on, I was hooked. How hooked? I want to invite her to my sister's wedding , that's how hooked (still working on that, I haven't given up!).But the thing is, I find her underappreciated by all. So, I want to provide you with the information necessary to become obsessed with Kate McKinnon just like me!
Who is Kate McKinnon? -- Why I'm glad you asked! Kate is a born and raised New Yorker (Okay, not NYC but she is from New York state.) She attended (drumroll) Columbia University. Bonafide genius. And the first openly gay female "Saturday Night Live" cast member. AKA she's perfect. Still unsure? Well lucky for you I compiled here some of her best skits.

If this article hasn't convinced you of Kate's wondrous comedic ability, then you must not have a sense of humor. She's everything young girls should hope to grow up to be. Confident of who they are, not afraid to make fun of themselves, and refreshingly unfiltered. She's not afraid to make the hard calls and bring humor to the most serious of situations. Because in this day and age, we truly need some comedic relief for the tragedies we face.
Go forth and be yourself.
