Mariah IdrissiBorn and raised in London to a Moroccan father, Mariah is a MODEL and a modern day ACTIVIST. In 2018, she was nominated as one of the ‘Most Influential People of African Descent’ under 40.Mariah stumbled into the limelight being the first hijabi model for the fashion house H&M in their ‘Close The Loop’ campaign after being scouted in Westfield.For Mariah she described the sentiment of “not African enough to be African, not Asian enough to be Asian and not Arab enough to be Arab.” She goes on to say Growing up mixed and trying to fit in was often a challenge. One of the great things about being of mixed heritage is the ability to be adaptable to so many different cultures and backgrounds because you've always had to be starting from home! I learnt that I don't need to fit into one box, I fit into many. The world cup makes me feel so proud when I see my country of origin represented.The fun thing about having mixed nationalities is you just support whoever's winning!”
