I’m just so proud not only of my skin color, but of the culture behind it…It’s so rich, and it’s such a powerful foundation, and I’m often reminded of that. I am constantly grappling with these big ideas on race and identity and representation because it’s the world that I live in, and I have seen firsthand how important it is.

I think I’m never quite 100 percent satisfied. That’s me being a perfectionist and that’s me also fighting for great story lines for women of color. I’m the female lead on this show and Iris is such an important character in the comic books. I’m not just fighting for myself, I’m fighting for every girl who looks like me, every character who may look like me in the future, every woman of color who gets put in this position of being a female lead who has a diverse background. I want them to have a very well-rounded storyline. It’s something that I’m always pushing for.

It’s been a rollercoaster. It comes with a lot of backlash, and it comes with a lot of responsibility. It’s been probably the most important thing to me about this job. I’m grateful for the job and playing Iris West, but the thing I will remember and take away from this job is the impact it’s had on the young women of color watching themselves onscreen—maybe for the first time in a super hero film or TV, and seeing themselves as the ingenue and being desirable and being the lead … which is something we don’t always see ourselves as. For me to have the opportunity to play that is amazing, and I hope that it encourages and inspires other young women.
