The Decision: Yara Shahidi Takes Her Talents To New England
Yara Shahidi is #BlackGirlMagic personified. She continues to spread her magical fairy dust all over our timelines and we love it!
The Black-ish star, and now College-ish star, has announced her pick for higher education … and of course it’s top notch, just as she is.
This news comes just a couple of months after the actress revealed the our forever FLOTUS, and Harvard Law School grad, Michelle Obama wrote her recommendation letter!
Honestly, who’s winning more in this deal? Yes, Harvard is an amazing Ivy League institution, but Yara is an amazing woman who will undoubtedly be a force to reckon with for years (nay, decades) to come. Harvard just got the come up!!
Shahidi has decided to defer her enrollment for a year, meaning she will be a freshman in 2018. Her decision was one that came with much thought and consideration. “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,” she explained to W Magazine.
Congrats, Yara! Continue to be #BlackGirlMagicGOALS!
