High school seniors around the world are receiving their college acceptance letters and determining what schools they will be attending come the fall semester, and that also includes Black-ish star, Yara Shahidi.

Last month we learned the 17-year-old was able to score a letter of recommendation from our former first lady, Michelle Obama, and it looks like that, along with her hard work has paid off.

In a recent interview with Seventeen Magazine, the actress was asked if she had gotten into any of the colleges she applied to.

She responded, “I did get all of my college acceptances and I’m keeping them close to the belt as of right now, but I got into every college I applied to. So that’s really exciting. I found all of that out last week.”

Shahidi continued, “My college plans are all up in the air, but I will choose within the next month.”

Last month the Black-ish cast and crew threw Shahidi a graduation ceremony on set since their show will be on break during her actual high school graduation.

Congrats to Yara Shahidi!
