Shahidi also told the magazine she had been accepted into each college to which she had applied. But ya girl slays the books while starring in a hit tv show - she was born for the Ivy League. She ended her post, which featured her sporting a Harvard University sweatshirt, with the hashtag "CrimsonPride". In addition to this exciting news, the 17-year-old will also be classmates with Malia Obama, who's now interning with the Harvey Weinstein Company in New York City.
"She is very unbelievable and such a supporter, which is something very surreal to say", Shahidi, who plans to double-major in African American studies and sociology, told W Magazine in March.
"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 People. "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", Shahidi said. Yara has been slaying the game since she was six-years-old, and she's just getting started.
