Senior year can definitely be challenging, especially when it comes to sending out college applications. However, there is nothing quite like the feeling you get when you see all of your hard work pay off as soon as you open all of your college acceptance letters. We’ve enjoyed joining Black-ish star Yara Shahidi on her college application journey – from finding out that her college recommendation letter was written by none other than former First Lady Michelle Obama to the most recent news that she got accepted into every college that she applied to!

She said, “I did get all of my college acceptances and I’m keeping them close to the belt as of right now, but I got into every college I applied to. So that’s really exciting. I found all of that out last week. My college plans are all up in the air, but I will choose within the next month.”

We’re totally not surprised that Yara Shahidi got accepted into every college that she applied to – she has worked so hard and continues to amaze us all with the way that she balances her education and working on a hit, fan-favorite show.

Yara Shahidi also revealed more details about her plans for college and discussed her reasoning behind wanting to pursue a double-major. She added, “Because for me, as much as I want free time, I love to challenge myself. And so it really goes back to the point that I want to study as much as possible and doing a double major is the solution.”


When asked about whether or not she has chosen her minor yet, Yara said, “I have not decided on a minor. I don’t know if I am going to go more creative and do something in the arts or if I am going to do a social justice minor, so that is still up for debate.”

Needless to say, Yara Shahidi is definitely a great role model to all of her fans and we love how she places a great importance on education and her passion for acting. She definitely defines what it is like to be a beauty with brains.


Congrats to Yara Shahidi on getting accepted into every college she applied to! We look forward to finding out which university she decides to attend.
