Yara Shahidi Will Attend Harvard University

Posted June 08, 2017

Her decision is in: Black-ish star Yara Shahidi is going to Harvard in 2018.

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.

In March, Shahidi confessed to asking former First Lady Michelle Obama to write her a letter of recommendation, which she obliged. She captioned the photo with a quote by James Baldwin.

"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.
