Teen Vogue just released its July issue, and hijabi model Halima Aden made it on the cover. 

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. 

The Somali-American model has also previously made it to the covers of Vogue Arabia, Allure, and Glamour.

"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.

Aden has competed at the Miss USA beauty pageant and is signed with the world's top modeling agency IMG Models, which is home to Gigi and Bella Hadid and Miranda Kerr. 

IMG Models had signed Muslim models before, but Aden became the agency's first hijab-wearing model.
