Yara Shahidi Covers Essence Mag

So honored to be able to grace my second Essence cover✨ Team @essence has been so extremely supportive since -quite literally- day one. My first feature was at 9-ish, talking about the importance of @anikaaroundtheworld in Princess and The Frog. Always celebrating every aspect of our community and our heritage in a way that we deserve to be celebrated. Thank you for seeing me and thank you for letting be me and highlighting the beauty of authenticity. So grateful to the real OGs, team Essence: @vanessa_kdeluca @thompsonproject @traceysees @corimurray @missjulee @zebablay (who wrote the cover story ☺️) @sophyholland (for capturing my essence😜) and thank you to my amazing team: @chocolatemommyluv @afshinashahidi (my honest to goodness day ones) @ascend_pr @jasonbolden @emilychengmakeup @naivashaintl @starburleigh ⚡️⚡️⚡️
