A British-Pakistani law student had become the first hijab-wearing model to enter Miss England finals.

The 20-year-old model is also very active with social work and has launched a fundraiser titled ‘Beauty with a Purpose” aimed at supporting underprivileged children around the world.

“I participated in Miss 2018 to show that beauty doesn’t have a definition,” the model said.

She added, everyone is beautiful in their own ways, regardless of their weight, race, colour or shape.
