"Black-ish" actress Yara Shahidi has made a choice after months of deliberation. She's going to attend Harvard University for college, where she plans on earning a double major in Social Studies and African-American Studies.

Yara Shahidi revealed her decision in a post on Instagram where she wore a Harvard University hoodie in the crimson shade. She captioned the image with a quote from James Baldwin about education and capped it off with #CrimsonPride.

Recommendation from Michelle Obama

In October, Yara Shahidi said she planned on taking a gap year before enrolling in a university, but she was still actively seeking her options and sending in her applications to different schools.

In March, she told W Magazine that former First Lady Michelle Obama wrote her recommendation letter.

"She is very amazing and such a supporter, which is something very surreal to say," she said of Obama. The two met and worked together for girls' education, which they both are advocates of.

Incidentally, Obama graduated from Harvard Law School and her eldest daughter Malia is also set to attend the same university this fall. Malia also embarked on a gap year when she graduated from high school in June 2016.

What about 'Black-ish'?

With Yara Shahidi heading off to college on the East coast, fans wonder what will happen to her character, Zoe, on ABC's "Black-ish," where filming happens in Los Angeles. The actress might use her gap year to iron out her work commitments before taking on a full load in school.

Her TV character is actually also heading off to college and the show did one episode about her life as an incoming freshman last May. That episode turned out to be the backdoor pilot for a spinoff called "College-ish," which Yara Shahidi will headline on Freeform, ABC's sister network. The show will run for 13 episodes and will begin airing in 2018.

Show creator Kenya Barris said, however, that the writers will still have to show Zoe's transition to "College-ish" when "Black-ish" returns in the fall. Co-star and Golden Globe winner Tracee Ellis Ross said she's excited about the spinoff but she also doesn't know how Barris and the writers will incorporate the changes. Ross also dished she's looking forward to guest appearances on "College-ish" as Zoe's mom, Rainbow.

Meanwhile, ABC has not yet announced the return date of "Black-ish" season 4. The show also stars Anthony Anderson, Marcus Scribner, Miles Brown, Marsai Martin and Lawrence Fishburne.
