Brief excerpt from cover story by: Shannon Mahanty:
Enter Yara Shahidi. The 18-year-old actress, student and activist happens to be the ultimate comeback to a tired argument. A generational trump card and a middle finger to the notion of Gen Z’s apathy, she is proof young people do have the power to change the world.
Though Yara does takes selfies: some with the Obamas and Angela Davis, members of congress she’s met and activists she’s inspired by.
Her social network is defined by like-minded, outspoken women, such as actress Rowan Blanchard and journalist Elaine Welteroth. Yara probably spends a lot of time on Instagram, too.
