Yara Shahidi Promotes Equality in GLSEN Awards Speech

Yara Shahidi Promotes Equality in GLSEN Awards Speech

Yara Shahidi speaks on stage while accepting the GLSEN Gamechanger Award during the 2018 GLSEN Respect Awards on Friday night (October 19) at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 18-year-old actress gave a powerful speech about equality at the event.

“We should all feel deserved and supported in expressing our right to being our whole selves, limited by nothing regardless of ethnicity, gender identities, sexuality, ability, religion or any other identity that we choose,” Yara said during her speech (via People). “There should be safe spaces in which our presence and existence are inherently valued, but more than that, I believe in promoting equity. It is dangerous to promote an identity by narrative.”

Yara credited her dad Afshin Shahidi for inspiring her activism.

“Thank you to my Papa for sharing with my mama, my brother, my aunties, my uncles, my brother, basically all of us, that a fight to help one person belong is a fight that belongs to all of us,” she said. “I am so grateful to stand amongst you.”

Yara met up with fellow actresses Storm Reid and Kat Graham at the event.

FYI: Yara is wearing a Tory Burch dress. Storm is wearing a Self-Portrait dress.

Yara Shahidi, Sabrina Carpenter, & Katherine McNamara Attend the #GirlHero Awards!

Yara Shahidi, Sabrina Carpenter, & Katherine McNamara Attend the #GirlHero Awards!

We’re always so inspired by these young women and the amazing things they do were recognized at the Girl Up #GirlHero Awards!

Yara Shahidi was among the honorees at the event held on Sunday (October 14) at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Also in attendance at the event were Sabrina Carpenter, Katherine McNamara, Ariel Winter, Monique Coleman, and Elsie Fisher with Eighth Grade director Bo Burnham.

Yara gave an inspiring speech that paid tribute to her mother for teaching her to know her own worth.

“Not only what she’s done for me, but what you’ve done for my brothers as well, is created an environment where it is the expectation that women follow their passions, but more than that, that we walk into every room understanding our worth,” Yara said. “No matter what faulty criteria is put on our voice, we walk in understanding that our existence is criteria enough, is proof enough of our ability to speak on certain issues, on our ability to convey empathy. And more than anything, our importance and emphasis on globalism.”

Sabrina performed her single “Almost Love” and a cover of Ariana Grande‘s “God is a Woman” at the event.

FYI: Yara is wearing a Carolina Herrera outfit and boots. Sabrina is wearing a Marc Jacobs outfit.

Yara Shahidi Reveals What She's Excited to Do in College

Yara Shahidi strikes a pose on the cover of Elle magazine’s Women in Hollywood issue, on newsstands October 23rd.

The 18-year-old actress opened up about acting, college and life lessons. Check it:

On how her role on black-ish changed as she grew up: “I have more input in the day-to-day stories. Kenya [Barris, creator of Black-ish] is some- body I can call with concerns, questions, and ideas.”

On what Harvard classes she’s excited about: “Film class. The first time I visited, I sat in on a class on African film and the dehumanization of characters. They were watching Amistad and talking about how the cinematography detached you from the main character.”

On a important lesson her parents have shared: “A lot of our conversations are about quality of life: How do we create a life we enjoy? What’s going to fill my cup up in terms of being philanthropic? My mother always says, “There’s nothing more interesting than an interested human.”
