Halima Aden, a 19-year-old Muslim Somali-American, made history this weekend when she became the first woman to wear a hijab and burkini while competing in the Miss Minnesota USA pageant.

Aden wore a hijab, a traditional Muslim headpiece, for the entire pageant, which made history in and of itself. But according to the Star Tribune, the St. Cloud State University student made history again during the pageant's swimsuit contest, when she wore a burkini, a full-body bathing suit which covers everything from the neck down.
