Our girl and 17-year-old Black-ish star Yara Shahidi has been accepted into every college she applied to for the 2017-2018 school year! Education is huge to Yara and we have watched her via social media focus on her school work and college applications. We even got word that her recommendation letter was written by the one and only, Michelle Obama!
Who can deny a soaring GPA, fire test scores, and a recommendation from our favorite FLOTUS?
Recently, Yara shared the news with Seventeen.com about her acceptances, “I did get all of my college acceptances and I’m keeping them close to the belt as of right now, but I got into every college I applied to. So that’s really exciting. I found all of that out last week. My college plans are all up in the air, but I will choose within the next month.”
Yara plans to double major in African American studies and sociology. She is unsure on her minor but knows that she wants to challenge herself intellectual as much as she can.
