Yara Shahidi is the role model we all need!

Yesterday, the 18-year-old actress and activist hosted the first-ever EighteenX18 We Vote Summit – a full day event to encourage young people to use their voice and vote in the upcoming mid-term elections taking place on November 6th. In case you missed it, EighteenX18 was founded by Yara to engage the Gen-Z generation to speak their truth, get active and vote!

Hosted at the TOMS Shoes Headquarters in LA, attendees at the event included over 120 delegates ages 17-20, along with various celebs given the opportunity to speak to the delegates abut the importance of showing up at the polls. Keep scrolling to see some pictures from Yara’s inspiring event:
