Hawa Ahmed (Somali: Xaawo Axmed, Arabic: حواء أحمد‎) is a Somali fashion model and the winner of the fourth cycle of the Swedish version of Top Model.[1]

Early life[edit]

Born in Somalia in 1989, Ahmed comes from a Muslim family and is one of eight children. She was raised in Mombasa, Kenya, before moving to Sweden with her family at the age of seven.[1][2]


Ahmed entered many modeling competitions, gaining experience in each contest.[2] In 2007, Ahmed was selected as one of twelve finalists in the first cycle of the Swedish adaption of America's Next Top Model, eventually winning the competition against Margarita Maiseyenka. She has worked as a model in Stockholm, Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris and Rome since winning the competition.[2] In 2008, she was featured on the cover of Sheeko magazine, and worked on an international ad-campaign for the Make Up Store in 2009.[2]

Ahmed has cited Somali models Iman and Waris Dirie among her biggest inspirations.[2] Her favorite designer is Roberto Cavalli, for whom she hopes to one day do a runway show.[1] She is also a yoga aficionado.[2]
