Real Talk with Hana - #AerieREAL

Hana catching up with friends while waiting for her next shot!

Hi, Hana! Thanks for sitting down with us! Where’s home to you?   

I am originally from Claremont in Southern California, but now I live in West Village in NYC.

Do you have any hobbies that you can’t get enough of? 

Yes! Yoga! I teach Yoga each week as well.

What’s your favorite yoga pose?  

When things in my life are going crazy, I like to flip upside down. Inversions are awesome! I also really love hip openers and heart openers. It reminds me to remember to stand up and tall and not slouch.

Namaste!

That’s awesome! You’re really talented! What’s your must-have item in your purse? 

Chapstick, I’m fully addicted to any chapstick and have about 15! But, of course, I always grab my one purse that never has any chapstick in it. If I had to choose a flavor? I would say cherry!

What’s your favorite go-to item in your closet?

I do have a favorite t-shirt! It’s sheer, long, and asymmetrical. I like to tie it up at the bottom. I wear it all the time, so my friends who are reading this will totally know what I am talking about!

What’s your all time favorite Aerie piece for Spring?

OMG. I love everything! I’m addicted to all of it. Aerie’s sweatpants are so cute and I love the little pockets. Also, I usually don’t rock a pushup, but I love the Brooke Polka Dot Pushup suit. I also love the bedtime lacy boxers!

Do you have a role model? 

To be honest, any strong, confident, female serves as a great role model to me. Lately, I have loved reading about Malala Yousafzai, “the bravest girl in the world.”  Her level of resilience is amazing and I love that she stands up for what she believes in.

Let’s switch things up! Instead of John shooting Hana…wait, Hana that’s not what we meant!

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, what does “love” mean to you?

I was in a yoga class and a teacher was talking about how the Japanese don’t say, “I love you.” And, if you think about it…we say “I love you” all the time! They challenge, “how can you take such a big feeling and emotion into a single word. It’s such an incredible thing!” I really like that description of it.

While it may be hard for me to sum up I do know one thing is for sure; it makes me warm and fuzzy just talking about it, and I don’t think it’s the Miami heat! :)

Thank you so much Hana for chatting with us!
