Erifili 

Geosciences and Policy double major, Pennsylvania State University

“My role model is conservationist, biologist, naturalist and author E.O. Wilson. He is a world-renowned biologist who engineered the landscape for conservation, but most importantly he coined the term and lifestyle of biophilia, the love of life and all living things.”

Reilly

Marketing major, University of Wisconsin-Madison

What she loves most about herself? “My resilience! I’ve faced some major obstacles in life thus far, and I am so proud of myself for having the resilience to bounce back, turning a negative into a positive, and continuing to grow with each and every experience!”

“I love my tenacity. College has shown me some truths about the world and myself. A lot of those things were hard to process, but I surprised myself with my strength. I think that all women are tested at one point or another and in these moments, we all have a decision to make: to get up, or to get up stronger.”

Kaitlin

Developmental Psychology major, University of Pittsburgh

Daily mantra? “’Think positive and positive things will happen.’ Such a simple quote but has literally helped me become the most optimistic person.”

Michelle

Plans after college? “I would love to do social media marketing or fashion merchandising!”

Nikita

University of Connecticut

“I am #AerieREAL because my strength is unwavering, because I am always growing and learning to love the things about myself that I once thought were flaws, and because I am unapologetically me.”

Savanah

Public Relations and French majors, Boston University

“To me, #AerieREAL is about honesty. It’s about being true to who I am and the woman I hope to be. I’m #AerieREAL because I refuse to waste another minute pursuing someone else’s idea of happy. I’m living my happy.”

Lidija

Marketing major, University of Maryland

Quote she lives by? “If you really want something, you don’t stop for anyone or anything until you get it.” — Blair Waldorf

Role models? “Iskra Lawrence and Sophia Amoruso.”

Jordan

Graphic Communications major, Clemson University

Can’t leave home without… “Headphones/earbuds, my wristlet (it has my ID and everything), and EXTRA spearmint gum.”

What makes her #AerieREAL? “Living authentically and unapologetically ‘me.’  I’m not what society thinks is beautiful all the time, but I’m exactly who I’m supposed to be, and that’s what the Aerie girl represents.”
