After being accepted to every school she has applied to, Yara Shahidi has chosen to continue her education at Ivy League Harvard University – joining Malia Obama in 2018! It’s all coming full circle, as one of her mentors, our forever First Lady Michelle Obama, wrote one of her recommendation letters.

Shahidi made the announcement via Instagram with the following quote from the esteemed James Baldwin:

“The paradox of education is precisely this—that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.”

She is also expected to star in Black-Ish spinoff series College-Ish. We are wishing Yara and Malia nothing but the absolute best. Continue to shine brightly as we know you will!
