Yara Sayeh Shahidi is an American actor, scholar, philanthropist, model and activist. She gained recognition for her starring role as the oldest daughter, Zoey Johnson, on the multi award-winning ABC comedy series Black-ish and its spin-off series Grown-ish. Her film credits include Imagine That (2009), Smallfoot (2018), and the lead role in The Sun Is Also a Star (2019).
Shahidi is definitely one of Hollywood’s most heralded young talents as she continues to use her platform to empower and inspire others. Yara has been awarded an NAACP Image Award for “Outstanding Supporting Actress” in a comedy series, nominated for a Teen Choice Award, and is the recipient of a 2016 Gracie Award for Female in a Breakthrough Role.
She began her career when she was 6 years old, appearing in television and print advertisements for companies such as McDonald's, Ralph Lauren, Target, GapKids, Disney, Guess Kids and The Children's Place. She frequently worked with her mother and younger brother in various print and broadcast campaigns. Shahidi also maintains recurring roles on the hit ABC series “Scandal” as the ‘young Olivia Pope’ and as ‘Maddie’ on ABC Family’s “The Fosters.”
Not only is Yara equally committed to scholarship and acting, but she also launched “Yara’s Club”, a partnership with The Young Women’s Leadership Schools (TYWLS) in New York. Yara’s Club is a bi-monthly digital meet up for Yara and students to discuss societal issues, self-improvement, and higher education. Additionally, Shahidi founded Eighteen x 18 with social news publisher NowThis, which was a platform to encourage her peers to vote for the very first time in the midterm elections. Furthermore, Yara served as the spokesperson for DoSomething.Org and 3M’s “Science Sleuth” campaign, which raised funds for classrooms in need of science and technology resources in Minnesota and St. Louis. The young star has been spotlighted in The New York Times, Variety’s Youth Impact and Next Big Thing issues, and was named number three under Celebs to Watch for DoSomething.Org’s 2016 Celebs Gone Good list.
