Actress and star of ABC’s Blackish Yara Shahidi is speaking out on  Donald Trump and his Executive Order to ban Muslims from several countries. In a heartfelt post on her Instagram page she tells everyone she is a “…result of love.” Read below  to see more of what the young actress has to say:

“I am the result of love. More specifically, Black and Iranian love. Of Shia love, of Christian love, of American love, of a love that highlights how interconnected we truly are. If my Baba was stuck in an airport because of a Muslim ban 39 years ago, he would have never fallen in love with my mama. I would not exist and I wouldn’t have two amazing brothers. Xenophobia destroys the power of love and the power of our collective potential. It creates a false sense of security for some and an environment of fear for others. Immigrants don’t threaten safety -stereotypical narratives that promote hate do.” Sincerely, A proud Black Iranian #nomuslimban #no wall #WeTooAreAmerica 

Many people around the world are taking to social media to to voice their opinions on Trump’s ban. The newly elected President states his ban on several Muslim countries will help the United States.

Like Yara Shahidi many families around the globe are affected by the new order. Social media stands with those affected by sending their support and finding out ways to help.

Over coming the death of her mother is tough but she states she had to remain strong for her son Titan. Kelly states,  “It was a tough, emotional point for me. “I remember not wanting to be sad for Titan. I wanted to keep myself together because I believe that all that stress and grief can be passed on to your baby. Knowing Titan needed me, and having that to focus on, helped me through.”

Kelly knows motherhood has its ups and down but she offers some great advice to new moms who may struggle.  She advises new moms to be patient. Rowland states  “It takes about a year to get the weight off. Don’t beat yourself up if it takes even longer.” 

Most new moms struggle with the weight they gained during their pregnancy, Kelly’s advice to patient is great advice to new moms or moms to be who may put themselves down about it.

If new needs help or advice she calls on some of her other friends who have children.
