"That's not really realistic — I'm not gonna make everybody happy," she explained. "At the end of the day, I realized I just needed to be myself and … showcase both my cultures; and make myself proud, my family proud, [and] everyone else proud just by being my most authentic self."

Jenn also expressed her desire for her casting to inspire others to pursue pioneering roles in their own lives.

"Representation matters … and the more representation, the better," Jenn emphasized. "I know that me being in this role right now is a step in the right direction."

The Bachelorette airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. Stream the next day on Hulu.
