Yara Shahidi Gets Real About Balancing Her Acting Career and School

Nothing is stopping Yara Shahidi from doing it all!

In a recent interview, the 18-year-old “Grown-ish” star got real about what it’s like to star in two successful TV shows and spearhead a voting initiative all while starting her freshman year at Harvard. How does she balance it all? Well, Yara revealed that growing up with parents who were both creatives and academics made her feel like she can do whatever she wants, but she does make school the main priority.

While fulfilling her dreams of becoming a historian and starting producing on “Grown-ish” season two all at the same time, we’re starting to think there’s nothing Yara can’t do!

“I feel like it helps, too, coming from parents who are both creatives and academics and my entire family are just a family of academics. So, I just feel like I have a support network to rely on that really helps me with all of it.”

Yara isn’t the only “Grown-ish” star who is killing the game lately. Chloe x Halle were just upped to series regulars for the show’s second season!
