C is for the Cavalry

Or, rather, one of my favorite Notable Nerds, Ming-Na.

Ming-Na is so inspiring–an unbelievable power-house of a woman. Her undeniable nerd-cred has significant weight, reaching from the realm of SyFy with shows like Stargate: Universe and Eureka to voice-acting the titular character of Disney’s Mulan and as Dr. Aki Ross in Final Fantasy VII: The Spirits Within. (Guys–she’s even in Phineas and Ferb and Adventure Time.)

In this Huffington Post article, Ming-Na opens up about her fandoms. My nerd-heart sings!

She’s also up for playing Mulan in a live-action movie, should one come to pass! She’s the obvious choice–the only choice, imho.

And the icing on the cake? SHE KNITS. Nice segue from the previous link: Obviously she has a Twitter, so F O L L O W  H E R.

Another thing that I admire about Ming-Na is her cultural pride and desire to portray a strong female badass for her children to look up to:

This woman cannot be stopped–THANK GOODNESS!
