As the first hijabi model to sign with top modeling agency IMG, the 20-year-old has been smashing the stereotypes in recent years, one cover at a time. Aden was born in a refugee camp in Kenya and moved to the U.S. when she was 7 years old.
"I'm so honored to be the Teen Vogue July cover girl," Aden wrote in a tweet announcing the news.
"Growing up, I never saw magazine articles painting Muslim women in a positive light. In fact, if I saw an article about someone who looked like me, it would be the complete opposite," Aden said in an interview with Teen Vogue.
Not the first time the 20-year-old model shines in the spotlight
In 2017, Aden walked the New York Fashion Week runway showcasing Kanye West's Yeezy collection ... all while wearing the hijab.
IMG Models had signed Muslim models before, but Aden became the agency's first hijab-wearing model.
