America Ferrera Talks Her 30s, Her Emmy Win & More with 'Latina'

America Ferrera looks perfectly windswept on the cover of Latina magazine’s February 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 31-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On being in her 30s: “There was a part of me that always felt like, eventually, I will feel empowered in myself and in my body. Being in my 30s has become about taking myself seriously and not apologizing for who I am.”

On being one of the first Latina to win an Emmy: “I didn’t set out to be the first Latina [to win]. I just set out to find opportunity, and if that results in opening up more opportunity, great. I do think it’s something to be celebrated, but it’s only one side of the coin. The other side of the coin? This shouldn’t be an anomaly by now. It shouldn’t be just two or three token Latinos who have made it by now.”

On her new show Superstore: “I feel there is so much pathos and comedy in the everyman’s experience of the world. That’s one of the things I really loved about Superstore when I read it. This is a comedy about how the majority of the people in our country live and what it’s like to have a job that isn’t about saving the world.”
