Somali-American Halima Aden made history last night walking the ramp for Kanye West modelling his Yeezy Season 5 collection at New York Fashion Week.

Halima Aden, participating in a Miss USA pageant last December told CNN News "There are so many Muslim women that feel like they don't fit society's standard of beauty, I just wanted to tell them it's OK to be different, being different is beautiful, too."

The 19 year old model, who was born in a Kenyan refugee camp, made headlines last year when she participated in US beauty pageant and proudly competed in the swimsuit round modelling a burkini.

Industry experts are already predicting the young model's career to soar exponentially. Shortly after signing to renowned IMG models Halima went on social media this week to tell her following-

"I signed with the top modelling agency in the WORLD and still wore my hijab as my crown. Don't ever change yourself... change the game".
