Congratulations are in order! 17-year-old, Blackish co-star Yara Shahidi will be attending Harvard University this Fall 2017. What a blessing she’ll be at Harvard furthering her education and at the same time shooting the new season of Blackish as a college freshman. Malia Obama who has taken a year off of school will also be attending Harvard this Fall. How special is that?! Did I fail to mention she got into every school that she applied to? (Spelman, Princeton, Brown and others). First Lady Michelle Obama wrote her a letter of recommendation. As we know, the First a lady attended Princeton and Harvard. 😍
One thing that used to worry me is the fact that it seemed like Harvard was this big scary thing where I would have to spend all my time studying just to get in. But getting to go to both campuses of Harvard and Oxford and getting to meet some of the professors was absolutely amazing.
I can’t wait to see what kind of leader she becomes as an adult.
