Yara Shahidi Proves Young Black Hollywood Just Keeps Winning!
The new generation of young Black Hollywood is absolutely unstoppable!
Shahidi has shot to fame starring as the oldest daughter in the hit sitcom “Black-ish” and also plays the young version of everyone’s favorite wine sipping hero Olivia Pope, on “Scandal.” Not only is the young starlet beyond talented, she’s also an avid STEM learner and advocate, and has been making her mark in the fashion world.
Photographed on red carpets in everything from Moschino to Tommy Hilfiger she’s become a staple on best dressed lists. Her natural hair spread for Vogue was absolutely flawless and she’s clearly no stranger to some well-deserved spotlight.
So it was a natural next step for Shahidi to get into professional modeling. She recently signed with New York’s Women Management and is gearing up to really represent women of color in media.
In an interview with Vouge she explained “It’s important to see yourself in media. We live with those ads, we follow the careers of our favorite models and support them because these images become a part of our culture. If I can add one more voice to the conversation, one more face to the spectrum, then I’ve accomplished something.”
Shahidi is blazing a path straight to the top and we can’t wait to see where her new ventures take her!
