Cosmo cover girl, Yara Shahidi, is one hundred per cent fun, fearless female all the way. The star of Black-ish and Grown-ish is an outspoken human rights activist and calls stuff out without playing it safe. In a recent Instagram video, she tearfully tearful demands “HOW DARE YOU KILL MY FAMILY”? when a deadly shooting in El Paso and Dayton killed 31 people.
She totally called out governments and communities on what they're actually doing to reduce racist institutions and white supremacy. Yara's been hugely vocal about getting Gen Z and millennials to vote, take things into their own hands and make a change. Her organisation Eighteen x 18, empowers people to vote. Wait, there's more - Yara also has a club ('Yara's Club') that's all about fighting poverty through education.
#GirlCrush ALL the way.
