Gina Rodriguez knows she’s not perfect.

“I work in an industry where I am constantly being told, ‘You’re not skinny enough. You’re not tall enough. You’re not ethnic enough,’ ” the Jane the Virgin star tells PEOPLE. “Being constantly told that you are not enough can wear down any woman – any person, period.”

But Rodriguez has always been able to turn to her parents – Puerto Ricans who moved to Chicago to raise Rodriguez, 30, and her two older sisters – for inspiration when she’s feeling down.

“My father was always very honest with us – and maybe crude at times. He prepared us for the game that is society,” she says of her dad Gino, who is a prominent representative for the Teamsters. “He prepared us to be able to look at billboards and magazines and say, ‘This is not the only body type that is beautiful.’ He would encourage us to find our beauty and love our beauty and accept our beauty as what God gave us.”

Gina Rodriguez has always known she wanted to be a performer – even if she didn’t always look the part.

“I was a huge tomboy,” the Jane the Virgin star tells PEOPLE about growing up in Chicago as the youngest of three daughters born to native Puerto Rican parents.

“I remember being 6 years old – I was probably wearing joggers and an oversized T-shirt – and I saw these little girls in sequins outfits smiling and dancing at the Puerto Rican Day parade. I was like, ‘I want to be in those little sequin dresses.’ ”

Rodriguez, now 30, joined a dance troupe and continued to perform through high school, but it wasn’t long before she set her sights on acting as well.

When she was only 13, she ventured across town on her own to audition for a commercial against her parents’ wishes.

“I got the parent next to me to sign my parental consent form so they didn’t know that I didn’t have a parent with me,” Rodriguez says. “I ended up booking the commercial, so they called my parents. I thought I was going to get in so much trouble. But I was going to get paid for the commercial so they said, ‘Fine. You can do it if you put the money towards college.’ I said, ‘Done deal, baby seal. Let’s do this.’ ”

When the “Jane the Virgin” cast took to the PaleyFest stage at the Dolby Theater on Sunday, the result was every bit as humorous, engaging and inspiring as quirky The CW show itself, touching on everything from star Justin Baldoni’s enviable abs to the ongoing struggle for immigration reform, prompting the cast to joke that they’d soon embark on a motivational speaking tour.

Golden Globe-winning star Gina Rodriguez kicked things off by eloquently discussing what the role of Jane meant to her, admitting, “Jane is a woman I wish I was more like… You seldom get the opportunity to even audition for a woman who is so strong and empowering and fearless and driven and a virgin.” Rodriguez pointed out that her parents are from Puerto Rico and speak Spanish and English, so she relates to relate to Jane’s dual identity and was eager for the chance to “talk about a culture that doesn’t get recognized as the hero.”

You can add Gina Rodriguez to the list of actresses wanting to show off their super skills on the big screen.

“I would love to be a superhero—that’s all I want to do is play a superhero,” the Jane the Virgin star tells me. “And let’s be real, I could kick some ass. We all know I could kick some ass.”

In October, Marvel announced that female superhero Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers would be getting her own movie in 2018. Casting has yet to be announced.

In a not-so-scientific poll of E! Online readers at the time, Annasophia Robb appeared to be the favorite to play Captain Marvel with Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola coming in a close second. Rounding out the top five were Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Dormer and Amber Heard. Superhero or not, Rodriguez said more doors have opened for her in the last two months since snagging the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy Series.

“The opportunities become more abundant. People have been so wonderful,” she said. “The opportunities for Jane the Virgin have become more abundant. We’re now in 32 different markets in over 28 countries. People are picking up on the show who didn’t know about it before. It’s very exciting.”
