“I feel like I’m here to bust stereotypes of Muslim women”

British Muslim Magazine had the pleasure in catching up with Halima for our Spring 2018 issue, where she tells us what keeps her motivated and more about her style. But first, lets look at her amazing cover for Allure Magazine.

Aden was first talked about in November 2016 when she became the first Miss Minnesota to compete in a hijab and burkini.

Since then, she’s gone on to walk in the Yeezy season five show at New York Fashion Week and made history as the first hijab-wearing woman on the cover of Vogue.

Born in a refugee camp in Kenya, Aden moved to the U.S. with her mum at age seven and told Allure that she’s been wearing the hijab ever since.
