Meet the Somalian model Halima Aden, making waves after the Yeezy's Season 5 New York Fashion Show

Kanye Wests Yeezy's Season 5 at the New York Fashion Week drew a lot of attention, not for Kanye, but for Somalian American model Halima Aden signed to IMG Models
Adem walked the runway wearing her hijab; something which is not a widely  common practice.

The model who was born in a refugee camp in Kenya made history in November 2016 when she wore a burkini and a hijab when participating in the semifinal of the Miss Minnesota USA pageant.  

"Everyone has been so welcoming and accepting," Aden told Vogue after the show.

Always stay true to who you are barriers can and will be broken!"
