She’s barely 17 but Yara Shahidi is one of the most promising talent of her generation. Even though she has been acting since a very young age and modelling, it’s the hit show Black-ish that putted her on the map. In addition of having a very strong sense of style, Yara who’s half Iranian and half black, is a fervent activist and don’t hesitate to get involved and elevate her voice about sensitive topics such as the controversial U.S immigration law best known as the “Muslim ban” or authorities violences against the black community among other causes. She was recently chosen as the new face of Beyonce’s athleisure brand, Ivy Park, and was featured in Vanity’s Fair 12 under 25 actors to know. We predict a long and fruitful career to this young lady.
