Check out Aerie’s Eight New #AerieREAL Role Models and Change Initiative


Aerie’s eight new girls are spreading the message of loving every inch of yourself and trying to help out real-life change makers.

Aerie launched the #AerieREAL role models to empower women across the world to love who they are inside and out. They inspire the Aerie community to be the change they want to be in the world through leadership, advocacy, workshops, and philanthropic partnerships.

The new role models are Tony award-winning actor Ali Stroker, actor and writer Beanie Feldstein, founder of Smile on Me Dre Thomas, actor and writer Hari Nef, scientist and CEO Keiana Cavé, actor Lana Condor, sustainability activist Manuela Barón, and DJ and wellness advocate Tiff McFierce.

The new #AerieREAL Change Initiative has Aerie and the models taking action and changing the game. Aerie is looking for 20 real-life change makers to award them with $20,000 to help them to continue to make the world a better place. The competition began on January 23, and winners will be announced in fall 2020. The winners will be featured alongside the 2020 #AerieREAL Role Models to share their personal stories and inspire the Aerie community.
