Last week, Black-ish star Yara Shahidi was surprised with a pre-graduation celebration from her Black-ish crew. The 17-year-old was all tears and smiles for the celebration, and she was presented with a mock diploma. In a heartfelt post, Yara Shahidi shared her exciting moment:

I'll be graduating before we come back to shoot season 4 (I'm just speaking that into existence) so my fam+ blackish fam put together a beautiful pre-graduation graduation. I'm not a crier but needless to say tears of joy were streaming. To know that everybody on set is invested in my well-being and future is surreal. They have watched me grow and helped me thrive. Thank you to everyone who orchestrated and celebrated this huge milestone in my life.

 Shahidi plans to graduate this year from the Dwight School in New York, NY. Two weeks ago, the actress revealed that Michelle Obama wrote her a letter of recommendation for college.



Go, Ms. Shahidi!
