Aly Raisman Makes 'Role Model' Debut with Iskra Lawrence at Aerie Flagship Store in Miami

Aly Raisman gets a big hug from model Iskra Lawrence inside the #AerieREAL Role Models event over the weekend in Miami, Fla.

The 23-year-old athlete joined Iskra at the Lincoln Road Flagship Store in discussing mental health and supporting Darkness to Light, a nonprofit that empowers adults to prevent childhood sexual abuse.

“It’s OK to not be OK… I encourage you to ask for help if you’re struggling,” Aly shared in a post-event interview. “There are a lot of people out there who are suffering in silence, whether it’s related to mental-health issues or related to abuse.”

She adds, “Maybe someone is struggling with an eating disorder; maybe they have really bad anxiety; maybe they’re depressed; maybe someone is hurting them… I want people to know I’m here, I’m supporting them, and there’s a whole army of people that are ready to talk about things to make change.”
