Going to college is so exciting. Moving away from home, having freedom, meeting new people, etc. Although going to college is so dope the process can sometimes be a pain in the ass. Some school’s require certain GPA’s, SAT scores and letters of recommendation most of the time. Black-ish star Yara Shahidi was blessed to have Michelle Obama write her a letter of recommendation! So cool!
In a recent interview, she got a chance to speak on how great it felt for Michelle to do this for her.
“She is very amazing and such a supporter, which is something very surreal to say,”
She says Michelle also helped her giving her a “go get em” on a AP exam. Shahidi says,
“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.”
This was an awesome deed done by Michelle Obama. Best of luck on your road to higher education Yara!
