BFFs Rowan Blanchard & Yara Shahidi Recall First Impressions Of Each Other

Do you remember where you were and what you were thinking when you met your best friend? Yara Shahidi and Rowan Blanchard do!

Growing up as child models, the two formally met again at the Teen Vogue’s Young Hollywood party in 2014 and in the new issue of the mag, recall what they thought of each other then.

“Having a friend like Yara is essential to me as a girl, as an actress, and as a teenager. She has helped me so much, often with-out even knowing it,” Rowan shares. “She is a wondrous witness to the world, capable of seeing the best of it as well as highlighting the parts we can make better. Yara is proof that teenagers have so much more power than we are capable of digesting and that our voices actually do change things.”

Love that quote from Rowan!

Yara adds about Rowan, “Whether you see her speaking to crowds of young future leaders or on television as Riley in Girl Meets World, Rowan emits beams of light and happiness onto other people. And it’s not something she can stop, nor does she try to.” SO TRUE!

She adds, “She is the friend I talk to when I need to process the fragile state of our world, or when I am craving new music or a film to fill my spirit.”
