by TV One Staff

When Michelle Obama writes your college recommendation letter, you can go to school just about anywhere, so why not choose the best?

That’s what Yara Shahidi did when she revealed via the ‘gram that she will be studying at one of the most prestigious Ivy League schools, Harvard University:

“The paradox of education is precisely this – that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.” ~ James Baldwin #CrimsonPride

For those who don’t know, Malia Obama has also chosen to attend Harvard. Will she and the black-ish star become college BFFs?

The students at Harvard have been making a big splash in media lately, especially after organizing the first ever all-Black commencement ceremony this past graduation season. Looks like Shahidi will be in great company!

CONGRATS YARA!
