Will Yara Shahidi Ever Run for President?

Oprah Winfrey has said that she hopes Yara Shahidi will run for president one day, but does the actress want to be in the White House?

The 18-year-old actress opened up during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing today (September 24).

Yara said she would like to be “policy adjacent… I don’t want to be in the White House but right next to it would be fun.”

She added, “I feel like there are so many ways to influence policy that is not theoretically in a political position, so maybe think tank is kind of where I want to be.”
