Biography: Halima Aden is a Somali-American model who’s best known for being the first woman to wear a hijab and a burkini at the Miss Minnesota USA competition in 2016, garnering a lot of media attention and earning her a spot as a semi-finalist. Afterwards, she signed on as a full-time model and made her debut in 2017 at New York Fashion Week for Yeezy Season 5. But the Miss Minnesota USA competition wasn’t the only time she defied industry standards and became a trailblazer — she also became the first hijab-wearing model to walk international runways and to be signed to a major agency, as well as the first hijab-wearing model to grace the covers of Vogue Arabia and Allure.
