TV Star Yara Shahidi Posts Bermuda Video Diary

September 28, 2019

She only here in July but it appears Black-ish actress Yara Shahidi is already pining for a return visit to Bermuda.

The 19-year-old actress and model this week uploaded a video diary of her recent visit on social media, saying at the outset: “Dear Bermuda, Is it too soon to say ‘Take me back already?’ From pink sand to the history and the flavour, I miss it all …”

The Bermuda Tourism Authority invited the NAACP Image Award-winning star to spend time on the island during the summer.

“Bermuda was proud to host Yara Shahidi and her family for a weeklong visit as they had ‘the time of their lives’ taking in the life and energy of the island,” said the BTA in a statement.

Now in her freshman year at Harvard — former US First Lady Michelle Obama wrote her a recommendation letter — Ms Shahidi is still appearing in the hit ABC situation comedy Black-ish and its spin-off series Grown-ish.

She has also appeared in such films as Imagine That [2009], Smallfoot [2018] and this year’s The Sun Is Also a Star [2019].

She was one of 15 women selected to appear on the cover of the September 2019 issue of British Vogue by guest editor Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

    If the BTA keeps this up they will make certain cabinet Ministers look foolish.
