Looks like 2014 is turning out to be just as good as 2013 for Issa Rae. The 28-year-old comedian and writer was just named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list. Last year was a huge one for Rae as she teamed up with ABC’s Shonda Rhimes and was cast as Nina Simone in an upcoming Lorraine Hansberry biopic. She’s also writing a new show for HBO and working on a book. 

Yeah, her grind is real.
