Halima Aden Makes Semifinals Of Miss Minnesota Pageant
Some history was made Sunday night with the first fully-covered Muslim woman to compete in the Miss Minnesota pageant.
Halima Aden, 19 of St. Cloud, made the semifinals Sunday night but did not advance to the finals. Aden competed in her hijab, and wore a burkini during the swimsuit portion.
She tells us she wanted to use the Miss Minnesota USA stage as an opportunity to change misconceptions about Islam.
