Muslim model Halima Aden is the first model to wear not only a hijab, but also the much maligned burkini, in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.

Halima is Somali-American, her early years spent in a Kenyan refugee camp before she and her family were brought to the US when she was only seven years old. She has had many firsts in her modeling career, but this is a major victory for Muslim women everywhere.
