#flashbackfriday | Tatyana Ali’s Teenage Years As Ashley Banks + What’s She’s Been Up To


Stumbled on this very classy — vintage photo of one of the 90’s favorite child stars, Tatyana Ali. Clearly this is of her while on set of “The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air”. Oh, the days, right?

After discovering the photo, I realized that I really did not know much about Tatyana. So I did a little snooping and found out 3 facts:

  • She was born in BK, NYC
  • She attended + graduated from Harvard University with a degree in African American studies and government.
  • She dated the late actor, Jonathan Brandis for SIX YEARS.

Check out what she’s been up to via Twitter.


I also ran across a perfect video for US girls + women | Who Run the World? Soledad O’Brien, Tatyana Ali + Ledisi Talk Empowering Girls & Being Self-Made. Enjoy!
