Yara Shahidi, 17-year-old Black-ish star, has always been the definition of Black Girl Magic and a shining example of excellence. Although she be young, she surely is fierce.
Shahidi is not only an actress, but a social activist and mentor for young girls. She has started applying for colleges and revealed that none other than Michelle Obama, a friend and huge supporter, wrote a recommendation letter for her. The two connected originally at Glamour’s “International Day of the Girl” and shared a stage.
This is an beautiful show of sisterhood and uplift! Wishing you the best, Yara!
