Apollo Alum and International Model Halima Aden Visits Apollo
April 13, 2017
Halima Aden followed by her manager and Vogue magazine reporter toured
Apollo High School. Vogue magazine is doing a story on Halima's background and
they wanted to get a feel where she grew up and her community.
Staff and students were excited to see Aden walking through the hallways of
Apollo again. However, not nearly as much as Aden. There were squeals and
screams of hellos and hugs as she saw old friends, teachers and other support
staff that have guided her on her path.
Aden with her positive attitude and smile radiated through the tour
yesterday as she introduced her old teachers to the Vogue reporter. She also
visited an AVID class where she sat and talked to the students about career
goals, keeping an open mind and to never give up.
