It’s been nothing short of inspiring to witness our #AerieREAL Changemakers in action, making fearless moves that in turn make for bold changes in the world. We recently gathered a group of our 2020 winners for a special virtual panel — our first-ever “Real Talk: Changemakers Edition”! — bringing onboard journalists (and sisters) Lola and Nikki Ogunnaike to moderate the live event.   

Watch the story itself unfold before your eyes below, as Lola and Nikki tap into what storytelling, authenticity & more really mean to four uniquely driven individuals: Sofiya Abena Ballin of Black History Untold, Katie Muckley of Imagine Missions, Rubini of Selfless and blind equestrian show jumper Wren Blae Zimmerman. Catch up on the discussion as they open up, share valuable insight and get real about their journeys. 

What were your biggest takeaways from the first-ever Real Talk: Changemakers Edition? Comment below Aerie fam and let us know!
