From the Bahamas to the big city, Chase has seen it all. Get to know one of the newest faces of #AerieREAL! 20160124_NewArrivals-Instagram What makes you #AerieREAL? I stay true to my personality, regardless of the situation or who I’m hanging out with. Lover or fighter? Both! I’ll cuddle you, but I love an argument. But I also love being a lover! What’s your guilty pleasure? Probably oatmeal! I’d have 7 bowls a night if I could. What are you currently listening to? Trap radio on Pandora. No joke, that’s all I listen to. Favorite thing about spring? It’s funny, because the Bahamas doesn’t experience seasons so I haven’t experienced spring yet. When I do, I’ll let you know! What makes you really laugh? Besides myself? If I’m being sarcastic to someone and they throw shade back, that makes me burst out laughing.SP1Images_26 If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? I don’t see myself as such a traveler. I’m from the Bahamas, so that’s pretty amazing, and I live in New York, so it’s the best of both worlds. My mom is from Australia and I’ve been there 11 times. I’ve been to the places I’ve wanted to be. How did you feel when you found out you wouldn’t be retouched? Obviously your first reaction is, Oh my gosh! And you pick out one of your “problem areas.” But then you’re ok with it and you support the idea because you believe that everyone should be confident in their own body and skin, and that’s what you represent. SP1Images_32 What body positive message do you want to share? Be healthy and don’t do anything for other people. Do it for yourself. If other people are telling you that you have to look a certain way, make sure YOU want to look that way. One thing the world needs more of? People who give people a chance and opportunity to do something, because I believe that everyone should be given a chance to chase their dreams. We need more supportive people in this world.
