Show Notes

In this episode our founder Nour Hassan speaks to Egyptian Model Mai Yackout. Mai is a young Hijabi model breaking barriers and carving out her own path in industry. With her unique look and killer fashion sense, Mai takes us through what it takes to make it on your own, and against all odds, in the most grueling industry of all: Modeling.

We speak about how she started, being veiled but also creating her own specific style even within the Hijabi community, the pros and cons of working with an agency and finally the world of social media and how it can be both a blessing and a curse for a young aspiring model.
