‘Black-ish’ star Yara Shahidi was accepted into every college she applied to


BLACK-ISH STAR Yara Shahidi has revealed she was accepted into every college she applied to.

The 17-year-old, who had her recommendation letter written by former First Lady Michelle Obama, told Seventeen that all that is left to do is decide where she will go.

“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,” the actress told Seventeen, when asked whether she’d heard back about her applications. “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.”

While the star hasn’t revealed her decision about what school she’ll attend yet, she’s already got a pretty good idea about what she wants to study. Shahidi told W magazine in March that she plans to double-major in African American studies and sociology.

“As much as I want free time, I love to challenge myself,” Shahidi told Seventeen of her coursework plans. “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.”
