Real. Empowering. Honest. Fun. Smart. Inspiring. Sexy. Kind. Diverse. Game Changer. Strong.
These words not only define the brand identity of the clothing company Aerie, but also words that I strive to live up to in my own life. I share my personal story about living with a disability in an effort to embrace myself as I am in hopes of inspiring others to do the same. So, as you can imagine, I’m a HUGE supporter of the Aerie brand and what they stand for as a company.
Now, more than ever, it’s so important to advocate for and invest in company’s that stand for and align with what you believe in. For me, that’s inclusivity! Aerie has been a pioneer within the body positivity and inclusivity movement for YEARS. In 2014 the brand was among the first to stop retouching models and through #AerieREAL pledged to highlight real women in its campaigns.
All that said, I’m SO EXCITED to finally announce that I have been selected as one of 125 women across the United States and Canada to represent this incredible ~and comfy~ brand as a 2020-2021 #AerieAmbassador!!! I can’t put into words how much I’m looking forward to all that I’ll experience over the next year.
It’s an honor to be part of a campaign that is committed to no retouching – because in my opinion – being authentic on social media is just as important as it is to be authentic in person. Over the next year, I’ll be sharing posts on my Instagram to feature my favorite new arrivals, how the #AerieReal campaign aligns with my lifestyle, collaborating with so many inspiring women through the ambassador program, and so much more. Extremely grateful for the opportunity and thrilled for what’s to come!
