For her SI photoshoot, Aden travelled back to her country of birth, to the beautiful Watamu Beach.

“I keep thinking [back] to six-year-old me who, in this same country, was in a refugee camp,” Aden said. “So to grow up to live the American dream [and] to come back to Kenya and shoot for SI in the most beautiful parts of Kenya — I don’t think that’s a story that anybody could make up.”

The 21-year-old made headlines two years ago as the first woman to wear a hijab at the Miss Minnesota USA pageant, coming in as a semifinalist. She went on to walk runways at New York Fashion Week and appear on the cover of Vogue.
