How did you get into modeling?
I was unexpectedly scouted in the street on my way back home from school. I was basically a traditional dancer, but I thought being a model could earn me more money than being a dancer, so I accepted the offer. But early in my career as a model, I didn’t got enough recognition until I met a photographer, Luki Ali. He’s the one who’s helping me with my career success.
Does your decision to dress modestly and wear a hijab affect the kinds of modeling jobs you can do and the clients who book you?

In your eyes, what makes a good model?
You need a good attitude to not only make it in modeling but to be successful in life in general. Show people respect and gratitude. Make it a habit to tell people thank you.
