More From Danica McKellar
- "I noticed there were so many people, especially women, who would come up to me having recognized me from TV and say, ‘I heard you were a math person, why math? Oh my gosh, I could never do math!’ I could just see their self-esteem crumbling; I thought that was silly, so I wanted to make math more friendly and accessible."
- "Find your self-respect now. Don’t dumb yourselves down. Think of yourself as capable and worthy of finding a guy who is going to respect you, too. It’s so important, I mean, and the confidence you get from feeling smart and tackling something like mathematics, which is a challenge, right? Math is hard."
- "I played Winnie Cooper on ‘The Wonder Years’ from ages 12-18, and did a few other movies during some of the summers."

- "I knew from a young age that I wanted to be an actor. I never even thought about other careers. The acting field is certainly not the path many Indian parents encourage their children to take, but mine were very supportive. They wanted me to have an education, but understood that this is what I wanted to do."― Archie Panjabi
