Yara Shahidi Reveals Life Lesson Her Parents Taught Her at a Young Age

Yara Shahidi is opening up about some advice!

In a new interview, the 20-year-old grown-ish star shared a life lesson she learned from her parents at a young age.

“One of the first things my parents taught me is that abundance must flow – I don’t know the age at which they sat me and my brother down to explain it, but I remember it being something I always knew in the Shahidi household,” Yara told Net-A-Porter. “It not only applies to physical resources – ie, when you get money, you give money – it is also the idea of time being a resource: your support, your love, your care.”

She also opened up about being born at the start of the new millennium.

“Very much informed by the culture and history of previous decades, 2000 also marked a turning point in which technology had become seamlessly integrated into our daily lives,” Yara said. “My peers and I grew up alongside the digital world – a double-edged sword that, at times affecting positive change, inherently changed the way we relate to one another. Connected in ways we weren’t before, I feel as though one of the largest impacts technology has made on my life is the sense of global community developed from being able to be in conversation with my peers, regardless of geography.”

“Here we stand on the precipice of progress and possibility. My generation proudly takes ownership of our identities and revels in our intersections. So why, at 20, do I feel as though we are looking for a home?” she added.
