PMA Spills the Tea with Michelle Obama Writing ‘Black-ish’ Star Yara Shahidi’s College Recommendations
PMA is spilling tea with FFLOTUS (forever First Lady of the US) Michelle Obama writing ‘Black-ish’ star Yara Shahidi’s college recommendations. Now if Yara wasn’t already the most poppin’ melanin, outspoken princess in the black media she is now. Let’s get the scoop.
Yara Shahidi’s College Recommendations were Written by Michelle Obama
Yara told W Magazine, “She is very amazing and such a supporter, which is something very surreal to say.”
The 17-year-old actress has applied to four colleges on the east and west coast with Harvard sitting at the top of her list. As you remember, Michelle Obama attended Harvard Law and Malia Obama will attend the Ivy League college next year.
Yara told People she plans to take a gap year as well.
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. 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. I’ve been working more than half of my life and that’s always been balanced with school and all of the other responsibilities, so to have a year to focus on work and to focus on specified interests will be nice before I pick a career and choose what I want to study and my life path.
Yara Shahidi was recently honored by Essence Magazine with the Next Generation Award at their 10th Annual Black Women In Hollywood Awards.
This queen is out her her crown! RESPECT Yara!
