The New Project Live Your Life Series Is Here! Watch Bailey In Episode 1

This season, we didn’t just take our Project Live Your Life winners on an American Eagle Outfitters photo shoot… we’re helping to make their dreams come true, too. From giving two artists the chance to design a T-shirt to be sold exclusively by AEO to helping a youth leader empower his community through music and art, five different cast members were given the chance of a lifetime while in San Francisco. We chronicled their journey in our new series, Project Live Your Life: San Francisco.

The premiere episode features Bailey, a photographer from Port St. Lucie, Florida. Bailey not only flew across the country to be in our Spring 2014 campaign, but was given the opportunity to meet one on one with our photographer, RJ Shaughnessy. RJ and the AEO team asked Bailey to shoot photos that could appear on our Times Square billboard.

Real Talk with Hana – #AerieREAL

Real Talk with Hana – #AerieREAL

Meet Hana! The newest addition to our Aerie team. Beautiful inside and out, read on to watch and learn what makes Hana #AerieREAL.

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.

Real Talk with Hana - #AerieREAL

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!

Hana rocking out in her soft lace bralette and striped boxers!

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.

Real Talk with Hana - #AerieREAL

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!

Have you heard about Aerie REAL? Well, we think it’s time for a change. We think it’s time we get real and think real. We want every girl to feel good about who they are and what they look like, inside out. This means no more retouching our girls and no more supermodels.

Why? Because there is no reason to retouch beauty. We think the real you is sexy.
