#AerieREAL Role Models Brenna Huckaby, Samira Wiley & Iskra came together this spring in NYC to answer YOUR questions about how we can all be there for our friends a little more.

“We have to teach ourselves a loving language.”


“We can’t make change by ourselves. A win for one woman is a win for all. When you really believe that in your heart, it’s really easy to build each other up.”


“If *she’s* winning, then that is really helping all of us.”


“Don’t be afraid to be your own hero.”
