American top model Halima Aden is proof that the circumstances of your birth has nothing to do with your ability to achieve great things. The Kenyan refugee camp born and hijab wearing model has taken the fashion world by storm since she got on the scene in 2017 and there is no slowing her down.
Since the start of her career, Halima Aden has achieved many firsts. From being the first Hijab-wearing model signed onto IMG models to being the first Muslim model to wear a hijab and burkini in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, the 21-year-old is conquering major milestones and proving her fierceness one headshot at a time.
Being a hijab wearing model, one would think that the very piece of clothing that symbolizes her faith would limit her ability to deliver on high fashion headshots, but the opposite has been the case. Halima Aden definitely has enough headshots to spare and in them she’s either showing off her signatuture hijabi style, the most stylish turban looks or other fashion-forward head accessories.
Halima, who’s of Somalian heritage, has consistenly served a rave-worthy headshot game that makes other models wish they could do the same while also serving as the ultimate inspiration for other Muslimahs who dream of making it big in the modelling industry.
