Read excerpts from Yara Shaidi’s interview

On turning 18, voting, and what that means for the future: “Even when you reach voting age, there are so few resources that are non-partisan in which you can develop your own political opinions. My ultimate goal is to turn the passions and interests we have into policy change.”

On being a vocal advocate for diverse representation in the entertainment industry: “I’m in no way trying to be the face of blackness. The goal is to open doors, role by role, and be drowning in a sea of people who look like me, or like someone else, so anyone can see themselves reflected on screen.”

Read excerpts from Issa Rae’s interview:

On her gratitude on what success has enabled her to do: I’m happy and grateful to be in a position where I can want to see something, and then support the people who are telling stories I want to see.

On keeping her private life private: I get so much feedback about everything. The one thing I don’t need feedback on is who I’m sleeping with.”
