African American women would be presented the same opportunities as their white counterparts. Rejection would be based on qualifications rather than race. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unfortunately, this world is far from perfect, however, there are people, more specifically women, who have dedicated their time, money and education to make a positive change. They’ve used their experiences and their encounters with injustices to fight and-or create more opportunities for their children and their children’s children, in an effort to make the world a better place. They've put our pain and problems on their backs and created space for change, new opportunities for our brothers and sisters to excel and succeed in a world that is designed against us. This is BlackExcellence. These are Ballerific Women. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of those special individuals is YaraShahidi, who is a young actress and model. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She’s best known for her role as Zoey Johnson of “Black-ish,” and it’s spin off show, “Grown-ish,” that premiered last week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, the 17-year old isn’t a new face to the screen. Back in 2009, Shahidi starred in Paramount Picture’s “Imagine That,” alongside actor and comedian EddieMurphy.

Memes, 🤖, and The Others: Michelle Obama Wrote Yara Shahidi A College Letter Of Recommendation @balleralert Michelle Obama Wrote Yara Shahidi A College Letter Of Recommendation - blogged by: @eleven8 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What’s the best way to ensure that you’ll get into any college of your choosing? Have the most awesome FLOTUS write your college recommendation letter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ YaraShahidi, who graduates from high school this year, plans to double-major in African American studies and sociology. She applied to four colleges, including Harvard, and according to WMagazine, former First Lady MichelleObama not only gave Yara a pep talk before she took her AP exams, she also wrote the young star a college recommendation letter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “She is very amazing and such a supporter, which is something very surreal to say,” Shahidi said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Like Malia Obama, Yara plans to defer college for at least a year. She told People Magazine back in October, “I know when Malia Obama announced [she was deferring], she got a lot of flack, 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,” Shahidi says. “I’ve been working more than half of my life and that’s always been balanced with school and all of the other responsibilities, so to have a year to focus on work and to focus on specified interests will be nice before I pick a career and choose what I want to study and my life path.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yara has currently landed her very own Black-ish spin-off, which will focus on her character’s college life. Congrats to her!
