Former First Lady Michelle Obama wrote Black-ish star Yara Shahidi’s college recommendation letter

ENDORSEMENT: Michelle Obama and Yara Shahidi

MICHELLE OBAMA, former First Lady of the United States, wrote Black-ish star Yara Shahidi’s college recommendation letter, actress revealed in a recent interview.

While most prospective college applicants have their high school teachers or former employers write letters of recommendation for them, the 17-year-old landed the biggest endorsements of them all when applying to colleges, including Harvard.

“She is very amazing and such a supporter, which is something very surreal to say,” Yara told W Magazine of Michelle Obama.

Michelle attended Harvard Law School, and her daughter, Malia, will matriculate at the Ivy League college next year.

Yara, who plans to take a gap year before starting college, will reportedly be studying African American studies and sociology via a double major.
