Ubah Hassan: A Model Story

A short film directed by Joe Berlinger for CNN profiles Somali-Canadian model, Ubah Hassan. Hassan’s journey to becoming a model may not fit the cookie-cutter story — it was the observant eye of a neighbor of that helped launch her career. “I never thought I wanted to be a model,” she tells CNN. “A neighbor who was in fashion saw me at the park, and it happened.”

Today, the self proclaimed global citizen works with some of the world’s top designers, and as she narrates her story in this film, she informs her audience of what has made her the woman that she is today.
