It was so unexpected but this was a main highlight of our trip to the White House. I met Yara from the television show “Blackish.” During some down time before our event, we were able to roam around a portion of the White House. We ran into Yara in one of the back rooms where she was being interviewed about STEM. I was with one of my teammates, Adriana. When we got the opportunity we went in and introduced ourselves. She was interesting and pretty. I never expected her to do STEM! We even got into a heavy conversation about beauty and hair products. She told us about a few of her favorite products like Wonder curls, eco style gel, Mix Chicks, and Tresemme.
