Cape Town – Grown-ish actress Yara Shahidi is the June cover star of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia magazine.

Aside from the stunning cover and feature photo shoot – taken by photographer Taylor Tupy – the Iranian-African-American 18-year-old opens up to HB Arabia’s Emily Baxter-Priest about how her multicultural heritage has shaped her into the activist she is today.

Speaking about her family, Yara says: “Being multicultural, you can’t help but be interested and connected to the world around you. My family is from all over the world, so how can you not care for people around the world too?” 

Yara adds that while she is made up of two cultures – Iranian on her father’s side and African-American on her mother’s side – she doesn’t separate the two.

“I don’t see much of a ‘this is my black side and this is my Iranian side’, because I come from a family of socially-engaged humans, and it’s hard to identify because of how similar both sides are.”
