Yara Shahidi showed off her loose, natural hair while arriving at the 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
The 18-year-old Grown-ish actress became a student at Harvard University after receiving a letter of recommendation from former first lady Michelle Obama. She started her studies in Fall 2018 and plans to double major in sociology and African-American studies.

After being accepted to the prestigious university, Yara spoke with US Weekly about her eagerness to hit the campus.
“I am so excited for the classes, and I know that sounds like, ‘Oh goodness she’s a nerd.’ I am,” Yara shared.
She added, “Honestly, I think to be in an environment, which people for the most part actually want to be there to learn, that’s [what] I’m looking forward to. I’m looking forward to just generally expanding.”

While her show was not nominated this year, in the two previous years Yara and her Black-ish co-stars were nominated for SAG’s Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.
Two days earlier, Yara highlighted her boobs in a tight blue shirt while attending the silver carpet roll out for the 2019 SAG Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

An active supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, in 2017 Yara tapped into her creative side to design a trio of pins for Pintrill that were sold on eBay. All of the proceeds benefited Bright Pink, a national non-profit focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women.
She styled a Prada T-shirt with jeans and added pops of contrast with chic architectural heels and canary yellow earrings.
