Black-ish star Yara Shahidi has decided to attend Harvard.

The 17-year-old actress, who plays Zoey on the hit sitcom, said she was accepted to every college she applied to, which shouldn't have come as a surprise considering she submitted a letter of recommendation from Michelle Obama. And like the former First Lady's daughter Malia Obama, Shahidi says she too will defer college for a year and attend Harvard in the fall of 2018. In the meantime, she will continue to work in Black-ish, which will return in the fall.
