In an interview, Aden said she wanted to send the world a message that the hijab was no obstacle to success.

“We can now see politicians, businesswomen, journalists and other successful women who wear the headscarf in public without a problem.”

“I am proud to have taken this step and appeared on Sports Illustrated magazine to highlight the beauty of women wearing this type of clothing.”

The Somali model has been criticized for what critics call “excess audacity,” saying the clothes are private. Others welcomed the move, saying it was encouraging for women who faced the embarrassment of wearing Burkini outside their homes.
