Shahidi is one of 20 role models from 18 countries being honored by Barbie as it marks both its 60th anniversary and International Women’s Day. The sheroes, as Barbie calls them, include German track cyclist Kristina Vogel, French director Lisa Azuelos, and Japanese tennis player Naomi Osaka. Read more…
