Halima Aden took the beauty pageant world by storm when she became the first woman to rock a burkini during the swimsuit portion of the Miss Minnesota USA competition.
The Somali-American teenager took home a Top 15 trophy, but made sure she told reporters what she really aimed to do that night.
"The people that are doing bad things, they don't represent an entire group," Aden told ABC. "I feel like I'm here to bust those misconceptions and stereotypes of Muslim women."
Wearing a burkini made a statement that we all, including Muslim girls and women, needed to hear.
"A lot of people will look at you and will fail to see your beauty because you’re covered up and they’re not used to it," she told KARE-11. "Be who you are. It's easy to feel like you have to blend in, but it takes courage to live your life with conviction and embrace the person that you are."
However, Aden isn't the first Muslim who has taken an interest in beauty. Check out these hijab-wearing women who are also slaying the beauty game.
