A month after the 17-years-old actress revealed that Michelle wrote her a recommendation letter, Yara has come back with the results, “I got into every college I applied to.” She went ahead and said, “I did get all of my college acceptances and I’m keeping them close to the belt as of right now.”
Of course, Michelle is not the only reason why the teenager actress got accepted into four state institutions, two Ivy Leagues and one historically black college. If you have a conversation with the girl, you will notice her intelligence and how well rounded she is. In fact, Yara had a 4.6 GPA in school not forgetting she was still doing her role in Black-ish.
Yara who plays Zoey on the ABC comedy Black-ish explained that her career dream is to pursue a double major in African American studied and sociology. This means she is still contemplating on what to minor.
However, college is not the only thing that will be keeping Yara busy – she is hoping her role in Black-ish will spinoff to her life in college. When asked Shahidi said, “[It’s] is up to the head of ABC, but we want to explore and see where Zoey is going.”
Like Obama eldest daughter, Malia, the Black-ish actress has decided to take a year off before she starts college.
