Vogue Arabia just released its June issue with hijabi model Halima Aden on the cover in celebration of Ramadan. 

"That surreal & dreamlike feeling the moment you see yourself on the cover of Vogue Arabia cannot be explained!" the Somali-American model tweeted. 

Aden just made history as the first hijabi to appear on a Vogue cover which centers around one main theme: identity.  

"Halima Aden, who proudly states that she wears her hijab 'as a crown,' is the perfect model for this Holy Month," said Manuel Arnaut, Editor-in-Chief at Vogue Arabia, in a statement

"More than just a flawless beauty, at only 19 years old, the Somali-American is making her way to the top by being true to her strong convictions and mastering the art of just being herself," he added. 

Aden "also gives us hope for a world where diversity and respect are the norm, not the exception, allowing people from every background or religion to blossom. I can’t wait for these brighter, colorful times," Arnaut said.

Titled "Celebrating Identity"

Aden described the moment as "surreal"

People couldn't help but express their excitement at the news

"Let's all take a moment to appreciate Halima Aden"


This wouldn't be the first time the 19-year-old model steals the international spotlight. 

Earlier this year, 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 has signed with the world's top modelling 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. 

Aden was born in a refugee camp in Kenya and moved to the U.S. when she was 7 years old.
