Project Live Your Life: San Francisco – Watch Tyler in Episode 3

Meet Tyler, a youth leader from North Bergen, NJ and winner of American Eagle Outfitters Project Live Your Life in Episode 3 of Project Live Your Life: San Francisco. During our Spring 2014 photo shoot in San Francisco, our VP of External Engagement and Corporate Responsibility, Helga, met with Tyler to give him the news of a lifetime: AEO was giving him $10,000 for his non-profit, Fit to Flow, an organization that provides support to local schools in need to enhance their theatre arts and music programs. . The catch? Our fans have to help him raise $10,000 to match our donation. How can you get involved? Visit Fit to Flow on Kickstarter and donate to Tyler’s cause to help him with the production of North Bergen High School’s musical, In The Heights. You can help Tyler make a difference in giving back to his community!

Want to make your own dreams come true with help from American Eagle Outfitters, just like Tyler? Show us how you take what we make and make it your own by joining Project Live Your Life and you could be featured in an upcoming AEO campaign. Get loves on your content to win awesome prizes, too. This week you could win an iPad Mini to help you get your big dreams off the ground!

Be sure to visit Project Live Your Life on Monday, March 3rd to see the next episode in our series and find out how much money Tyler raised for Fit to Flow.

Missed Project Live Your Life San Francisco: Episode 2? Two artists, Teren and Adria, created six original designs to be produced on an exclusive T-shirt sold by AEO. Our fans voted on which design they wanted us to sell later this spring on AE.com.

Meet the Cast: Tyler

Meet the Cast: Tyler

Meet Tyler, a rapper, musician and philanthropist from North Bergen, New Jersey. We were inspired by Tyler’s passion and talent and that is why we chose him as a winner of American Eagle Outfitters’ Project Live Your Life. Keep reading to learn more about Tyler and be sure to follow him on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

You are musically talented. How did you find your passion?

I started writing music at the age of nine and singing and dancing at the age of five. My mother was in a band, so that’s where I first found my passion.

Are there any rappers, singers or artists that you aspire to be like?

Lupe Fiasco or Lauren Hill, lyrically.

You have GREAT hair. What is your daily regimen?

I normally wash my hair every other day and once every month I’ll do an avocado treatment. I also use coconut oil.

Where do you pull your lyrical inspiration from?

Past experiences, my everyday life, what I know and the people around me. Everyone has a story.

Have you ever written a song about another person?

Yes, I have written songs about my family, especially my mother, and one song about my father, “Griffin 2 Griffin”.

If you could pick one artist to do a collaboration with, who would it be and why?

Definitely Justin Bieber. I’m a huge fan of his music and I greatly admire his work ethic. He’s accomplished so much at the age of 19 and is a really great artist in my opinion.
