This isn’t just shinning, this is shinning on a whole ‘nother level!

Black-ish star Yara Shahidi just scored the recommendation letter of a lifetime from our forever FLOTUS! That’s right, the 17-year-old actress has the stamp of approval from Mrs. Obama.

During an interview with W magazine, Shahidi revealed that the former First Lady was one of her biggest cheerleaders. “She is very amazing and such a supporter, which is something very surreal to say,” Yara told mag.

Shahidi has yet to choose her place of higher education but has applied to several universities including Harvard … which is where Obama received her Law degree and where daughter Malia will be going after deferring a year. Yara also told W that she plans to defer a year as well. But when she does begin school she wants to double major in African-American studies and Sociology.

“I know when Malia Obama announced [she was deferring], she got a lot of slack, but I feel like what’s interesting is I know so many people that are deferring,” she told the site. “It’s more than to just roam around or just sit down and stare at a wall, but it will also give me an opportunity to work. I’ve been working more than half of my life and that’s always been balanced with school and all of the other responsibilities, so to have a year to focus on work and to focus on specified interests will be nice before I pick a career and choose what I want to study and my life path.”

In one photo, the 5-year-old, clad in a pink pajama set, can be seen leaning over a couch while wearing the heels. In another, you simply see the shoes ill fitted on the cutie’s feet.

There’s no doubt Blue will not only grow up to be a fashionista like her mother, but will most likely become a musical genius.

On Jay Z’s latest album 4:44, Blue lands on one of her famous father’s tracks and kills it with a freestyle.

During “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family,” BI raps for a long 45 seconds about … well … we aren’t sure. But here’s what she’s possibly saying: “Everything, everything is my only single thing / Everything I hear is my answer…I never hear that / I be in the posse / Never seen a ceiling in my whole life, Boom shakalaka / Boom shakalaka / Everything in shaka / Everything in faka.”
