Who am I?

Hi im Salwa, I was born in Morocco but grew up in London. I have a passion for fashion and an ambition for change and diversity in all industries of modelling, tv and film. Im studying Biology and work as a Healthcare assistant at a hospital but dont take me too seriously because i live by having fun and taking on any challenge thats thrown my way. I also want to shine the light on representing more hijabi, modest females on tv

What do I think about the Fashion Hero TV Series?

I love the moral of the show. Simply to show people you dont have to be a stereotypical model to be confident and beautiful. The fashion hero brings out all types of diversity and variety to preach that we can be unique, stand out and inspire others that their ethnicities, cultures, backgrounds and stories have made them an idol to others

Why would I be a great role model for this generation and inspire people as the new face of the Fashion Hero?

I believe i have a good eye for creativity in all aspects of what i do, from composing my own looks to creating art on a canvas. People need to be inspired from change and as a hijabi who preaches modesty but also wants to express her love for exploring the world and learning new skills, i have hope that i can be that person to encourage and motivate others that there is a bright side in the world. I have been a hijabi from the age of 12 and it defines who i am but some dont see the Intelligent, strong minded and joyess female under the headscarf. People think its oppression but i believe what i wear is more freedom than it is intrapment. I work to look after patients and my job role is to put others first, but sometimes you have to think of yourself. We only live once and this isnt just about fashion its about conveying to the world that anyone can accomplish their dreams with positivity, a kind heart and the mindset to say YES!
