“I love supporting movements that help perpetuate this idea of rising together.” Yara Shahidi is #AerieREAL! Yara is an actress and thought leader. In her gap year before attending college, Yara is furthering her own creative projects and using her strong voice to support movements that matter, from increasing voter turnout in the 2018 midterms to empowering young people to get involved in social causes focused on human well-being. RoleModelShop_Yara.jpg Living and acting with purpose and following the examples of the amazing role models in her own family are some of the drivers that motivate this #AerieREAL Role Model to keep pushing forward each and every day.
With such a strong voice, it’s no surprise that to Yara, personal style is all about standing strong and feeling good in what she wears. “When I can own what I’m in, I feel much more comfortable when I take on the world around me.” Shop Yara’s faves and see more from all of our #AerieREAL Role Models here.
