YARA SHAHIDI'S ACCEPTANCE SPEECH
“I didn’t prepare anything today, but it was because I knew that I was going to find an answer here. And I did. I was wondering what it meant to be a woman. The conclusion I came up with is that to be a woman is to be an abolitionist. To be a woman is to understand the power of our yes"
Yara, whose goal is to awaken a new generation of activists, had the audience - among whom was her beloved family - on their feet. This young woman is more than inspired, she is an inspiration.
TREVOR NOAH ON YARA SHAHIDI
Introducing Yara Shahidi at the Glamour 2019 Women of the Year Awards was comedian Trevor Noah, who was obviously bowled over by the stunning young woman. Noah said:
“I’ve met few people in my life who are as enigmatic and amazing as Yara Shahidi is. She is equally brilliant, funny, intelligent, caring, and just all-around kick-ass."
And it's no surprise that Noah was impressed.
This actress, who is also a college student has founded a nonprofit for civic engagement called Eighteenx18 and impressed former First Lady Michelle Obama so much that she offered to write her a college recommendation letter.
WOW! We can't wait to see what Yara does next...
