• Zoey Gets Grown

    All grown up and off to college, the Black-ish spinoff follows Dre Johnson’s(Andre Anderson) eldest daughter ,Zoey Johnson (Yara Shahidi), on a journey to discover herself at Cal U. Unlike in high school, ‘College Zoey’ is discovering that she doesn’t have it all figured it out. She falls down from the cool girl to slightly awkward newbie. A lovely contrast to the self absorbed teen we are used to seeing. Stuck in drone class, the main group of friends are birthed from telling the stories of how they missed registration. From hot passions in the toilets to smoking weed in…

A person who comes to mind is Shameless Maya, a creator on YouTube who decided to shamelessly promote her passions and is doing amazingly well for herself years on.
