It’s all about lifting others up!

From starring on “Grown-ish” to balancing work and school, Yara Shahidi always does things with grace! And in a recent interview, the 18-year-old star – who has been dishing all the must-know info about the college-based sitcom – is opening up about her young fan-base and how she hopes to inspire them. Touching on the ways activism and speaking up for what you believe in should be key parts of growing up, Yara keeps it real in the best way possible:

“When you’re young, you’re told to stay quiet…Part of the purpose of me sharing how I feel is to empower other people to realize that their opinions are worthy of being shared.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves! We love the way the actress uses her platform to uplift others and show all the young people out there that their voice matters.
