Take notes people, model Halima Aden is proof that you don’t always have to conform to succeed. The Muslim girl who recently signed with IMG Models has made headlines, she rocked her hijab in style at the Yeezy Season 5 fashion show during New York Fashion Week.

 

Kanye West apparently casted the 19-year-old Somali-American model for diversity on the runway.

This is not the first time Halima has made the news, last November the African girl who was born in a Kenyan refugee camp, made headlines when she was the first participant to wear a hijab and also a burkini at Minnesota’s  Miss USA competition.
