U.S. model Bella Hadid has spoken out against President Donald Trump's attempted travel bans, saying she is proud to be a Muslim and the daughter of a refugee.
Axar.az reports that twenty-year-old Hadid is one of the most photographed and in-demand models of the moment, dominating the catwalk in the fall/winter 2017 fashion season in New York and Europe.
She is the younger daughter of Palestinian-American real estate developer Mohamed Hadid, who emigrated to the United States when he was a teenager, and Dutch-born model Yolanda Hadid.
Older sister Gigi is a supermodel and younger brother Anwar is another model.
"My dad was a refugee when he first came to America, so it's actually very close to home for my sister and brother and me," Bella told fashion magazine Porter of Trump's attempted travel bans.
"He was always religious, and he always prayed with us. I am proud to be a Muslim," she added.
Her father was born in Nazareth in 1948, and lived in the Middle East before moving to the United States as a teenager.
