Tory Burch and Halima Aden on Embracing Ambition
Watch their conversation from the 2020 Embrace Ambition Summit
Activist, refugee, model, leader – those are just a few of the words that describe Halima Aden. The 22-year old model got her start in as the first woman to wear a hijab in the Miss Minnesota USA pageant. Since then, she has gone on to model in major global publications wearing hijab, writing this into her contracts and paving the way for new industry standards. Also a UNICEF ambassador, Halima defines what it means to embrace ambition. She joined Tory at our 2020 Embrace Ambition Summit to discuss the ways she is fearlessly following her dreams.
