Former First Lady Michelle Obama gave Black-ish star Yara Shahidi the ultimate cosign. A proud education advocate, Obama penned a recommendation letter on behalf of the college bound actress.

Shahidi dished on her relationship with the former FLOTUS during an interview with W magazine gushing, “She is very amazing and such a supporter, which is something very surreal to say.”

The 17-year-old, who plans to major in African American Studies, has applied to a number of schools including Harvard University. Coincidentally, former First Lady Obama graduated from Harvard’s Law school and her daughter Malia is slated to attend Harvard in the fall.

Like, Malia Obama, Yara Shahidi plans to take a year off before beginning her undergraduate studies.
