TV and Movies
I'm Yara Shahidi.
I am 18.
I am an actress on Grownish and Blackish.
If today were my last day on Earth, I'd be okay with it.
We're about to go back to shoot Grownish for season two, which I'm really excited about.
Which one of these bracelets has I am Hello World?
It's really cool because season two we really get to explore more of who she is personally.
I love that.
I come from a tech family.
I had my first, what was it, Macintosh computer with a Curious George sticker on it when I was three.
I remember getting my iPod.
It was just one of those moments where it was like, wow I can carry around all of my favorite music.
Even now with my phone, it really is just Just the device to carrying my music, and then of cause get in touch with people,
I listen to a lot of Frank Ocean, i listen to a lot of any IDs, so we are just listening to in search of during this shoot, build to pleasure would have to be football on the roof, i like to pretend i'm on chops, and pull out randomly gradients, and then we can all make something now.
And no one else in the family eats it.
I feel like right now what we're enduring is a lack of transparency.
That is something that I feel like has made humbling myself but so many people in my generation a little Wearing it in realizing whether it's the algorithms that are in play to see that really determine what we see and when we see it and then there's the other end of it of how unfiltered it is at the same time in which it really can be a place in which you get your feelings hurt, which can be a catch-22 to try and maneuver.
I feel like it's a way for people to get to know me personally.
A lot of the times when you see me, especially being in a position as a public figure as an actor, you see me as a character.
I feel like social media kinda fills in that in between.
When I do show things this is genuinely how I feel at that moment.
