Yara Shahidi May Postpone Attending Harvard

Yara Shahidi May Postpone Attending Harvard

Yara Shahidi was accepted to Harvard University, but the 17-year-old actress says she may not be enrolling this fall. She’s currently starring in Freeform’s Grown-ish, a spin-off of ABC’s Black-ish. Yara says about school,

Everybody from the writers to the production understands how much I value my education and we’re doing our best to figure out how we want to make it work, but I feel pretty lucky to be able to make a commitment to a school… and to a show. I’m doing my best to figure it all out.

Grownish has already been renewed for a second season, with the network ordering 20 more episodes of the show.

    If she goes to school, she will really have to focus and prioritize. Hopefully, the show can work around her school schedule. I am glad she is giving it some serious thought.
