As Somali Supermodels continues to garner attention, their agents and managers are stepping up their recruiting efforts. In fact, there has been an increase in the number of models who want to be a part of the Somali modeling industry. While it’s still early in the game, there is some successful Somali Supermodels who have been doing quite well in the fashion world.
There are many reasons that are behind this increase in recruiting efforts. One is that more Somalis are being identified as more successful and intelligent. Two, they are being viewed as a natural fit for the modeling industry. Three, it is often a shock to many people that Somali women, so few in number, could possibly find success in modeling. Now, more than ever, it appears that modeling is a viable career option for women and girls who come from a family where such an opportunity would not otherwise be available.
Some of the most famous Somali Supermodels are those who won contests for cover models. One of these models is Wafaa Abdirahman, who won the leading African beauty contest Miss Africa, in the year 2020. She was also the runner-up in the prestigious Miss Universe Pageant. More recently, Hiba Khateeb was an alternate for the 2020 Miss Universe Contest, which went to South Africa’s Jethro Pritchard. Both models attended a school in California and studied English and communications before joining the modeling field.

In the beginning, their agents and managers, especially the more successful ones, made sure that their clients were represented by the best ones. It has been said that the newer Somali Supermodels has a lot to learn in this area.
