You would have to be living under a rock to not recognize the name, Yara Shahidi. This phenomenal young woman is only 17 years old but has already been praised for her full-time acting career and social activism. This Fall she will join Malia Obama with the rest of the 2018 freshman class at Harvard University. She has managed to land her own spinoff from popular show Black-ish, titled Grown-ish. Grown-ish will also air in the Fall of 2018 and follow her character Zoey’s college life. Perfect timing right? Yara has come a long way since her McDonald’s commercials at the tender age of 6 and has blossomed into a true role model other girls can look up to. Before even reaching 18, Yara Shahidi is already very accomplished and shows no sign of slowing down. She is the ultimate all around girl crush.
