Jameela is an actress and activist who uses her real power—her voice—to remind all of us to recognize the value beyond our bodies. She founded the I Weigh movement to provide a space for everyone to share their REAL worth.

Jameela knows how to use her voice, and we’re all listening.

“We have to use our voices to make change.”

“It’s not that I’m starting to love everything about myself. I’m starting to not care about the things that don’t matter and I do care about the things that do matter, like what kind of a friend I am, what kind of a colleague I am, what I am contributing to the world and society, and how I make other people around me feel.”

Meet all of your new #AerieREAL Role Models here.

  2. Chaplain Ruth Summers Tweedle aka Queenii

    HalleluYAH Hail YAHUAH Bless in YAHUSHUA’S JESUS’ Name.

    My Granddaughter Jasmine was told by a New York Agent Representative in a Houston audition that She is overweight at 5ft 11 1/2in, 138lbs. She’s almost 6ft tall. A Boy that height would not be called fat at that weight.

    We in our Family are not trying to feel that. We are supportive of Her choices to stay healthy. Heck with money and modeling if She has to become anorexic. I’m sure She will have some modeling and singing opportunities, if not professionally, certainly at church. We love Her.

    There are different kinds of ants, spiders, tigers, and elephants. She has the right to be. When YAHUAH GOD made each of Us HE said, “Good and very good.”
