Halima Aden made her SI Swimsuit debut in 2019 and was the first hijab-wearing model to appear in the magazine. Halima first rose to fame through the pageant circuit, where she was the first participant to wear a burkini during the swimsuit competition. Halima was born in a refugee camp in Kenya and moved to the United States at the age of six. She is a UNICEF ambassador, diversity advocate, and has collaborated with modest clothing brand Modanisa to design her own turban and shawl collection.
