7. Yara Shahidi
Yara Shahidi is a social activist who spends her spare time volunteering at medical clinics, recording public service announcements for young women to pursue STEM, has her own mentoring club, and meets with UN Women regarding gender equality.
If that wasn't impressive enough, the young role model has also been recognized by the N.A.A.C.P. for her commitment to service and scholarship, and took the time to speak at the Paley Center for Media on a panel titled “Cracking the Code: Diversity, Hollywood & STEM.”
