Tig Notaro's 'Ask A Grown Woman' Video Is Beyond Amazing

"We're all great. You've just got to be confident."

That's some of the advice comedian Tig Notaro offers in her "Ask A Grown Woman" video for Rookie magazine.

Notaro's amazing advice to struggling teen girls is backed up with anecdotes from her own life -- from her double mastectomy to losing her mother. "A great gift you can give to your mother is to spend time with people around you and truly cherish the time you have with them," she tells a young girl struggling with her mother's passing.

Watch the full video above to see what else Notaro has to say on making friends, increasing self-confidence and dealing with loss.
