Despite being the creator and star of HBO, ‘Insecure’, Issa Rae is anything but insecure. The 33-year-old actress and writer claims to be as confident as ever.
“Confidence comes from knowing your sh-t is good,” she tells Cosmopolitan magazine for its July 2018 issue.
“I’m for sure confident when it comes to work and trying to fulfill my dreams. Socially, the confidence has teetered, but that’s growing as I’m coming into who I am.”
On her numerous awards and recognition, one of which is receiving two Golden Globe nominations in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series for a Musical or Comedy category, Issa Rae says it’s not just about the awards but about the representation of women of color on-screen.
“I prioritize making dark-skinned women desirable. You don’t see a lot of dark-skin representation. That’s been overlooked. Also, seeing them as beautiful, in addition to desirable, which are two very different things.”
