Student Chosen for National Ad Campaign

Fox Chapel Area High School student, senior Hannah Petrucelli, was chosen to be a part of a national advertising campaign for Aerie. Hannah is featured in the campaign which promotes Special Olympics, positive body images, and celebrating differences. The campaign uses #AerieREAL and also features Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman and #AerieREAL role model Iskra Lawrence.

The #AerieREAL campaign uses unretouched ads and encourages women to embrace their power and positivity. Aerie is a brand of clothing for girls and young women and is owned by retailer American Eagle Outfitters.

Hannah is a member of the Fox Chapel Area High School Best Buddies Club and is also a sprinter on the school’s Unified Track & Field Team. The Unified Sports teams include students with and without intellectual disabilities. The Unified Sports program is part of Special Olympics Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA).

In addition to being in ads and videos, Hannah is also featured on the #AerieREAL website.
