Gigi had been a Muslim from her earliest years.
Her family moved to Indonesia when she was six years old, and she lived with her aunt and uncle as they traveled between Jakarta and Singapore.
But her family, along with a host of others, converted to Christianity when she entered high school.
She converted to Islam when she reached the university.
When she returned to Indonesia in the late 1980s, she was immediately shunned.
“The whole Indonesian Muslim community, they didn’t want to know me,” she said.
“It was a very negative environment.
I think it was more because of my religion.”
As an American, Hadid didn’t fit the mold of her Muslim Indonesian community.
“I felt like I didn’t belong,” she explained.
Hadid’s conversion to Islam didn’t happen overnight. “
So it was very hard for me to understand that my Muslimness wasn’t what was important to them.”
Hadid’s conversion to Islam didn’t happen overnight.
“At first, they were just looking for me, but when I was in Indonesia, I realized they wanted to understand me,” Hadid said.
“[They] just wanted to see me in a different way.”
In Indonesia, Islam is a state religion and was considered a religious minority.
“My community didn’t know anything about Islam, so it was hard for them to understand how it was really a religion,” Haden said.
In the 1990s, the Islamic world saw the rise of a new, modern version of Islam, which saw the birth of the Hadid brand.
“Gigi was the first Muslim to be an iconic brand that was marketed to the world and then to the Muslim world,” said Ahmad Rizk, a professor of political science at the University of California, Los Angeles.
“She changed the entire way people thought about Muslims.”
As Hadid made her way through the world, she kept her religion a secret.
“When I saw people who were wearing the hijab, I was like, ‘Why?’
I thought they were weird,” she recalled.
“Because of my faith, I could be Muslim, but I wasn’t going to tell anybody.”
She became an ambassador for the brand and made appearances on television, speaking about how Muslims are a “special, spiritual, spiritual community.”
But Hadid was also the face of a global movement to reform Islam, a movement she called the “Glamour Revolution.”
In her book, Glamour, she detailed how, during her years as a Muslim, she learned that she had “gifted” her faith to others.
“Every time I gave a sermon, I told people that I’m not a Christian.
I’m Muslim,” Hadi said.
She described how she was asked why she wanted to become a Muslim and how she responded, “Well, I’m here to show you that I am a Muslim.”
The following year, Hadi’s conversion became public, and her brand became one of the most recognizable brands in the world.
She and other Muslims joined together to form a global organization, GIA, which now has more than 150 offices across the world that offer a variety of products and services, including products for women.
“We have an incredible mission to change the lives of Muslims around the world,” Hadidi said.
Hadid has been the face, voice and symbol of the brand for the past 15 years.
GIA has gained more than 100 million followers in the United States alone, and its mission has been to change Islam in the West, and to bring more women into the Muslim community.
As a brand, Gia has been celebrated for being authentic, inclusive, and inclusive.
Hadi explained that she’s been working with GIA for decades to change her brand’s image.
“If you look at the image of GIA and what it is today, they’re very much in the mainstream of the Muslim American community.
And it’s very much an extension of what I am,” she continued.
“You have people that are just really proud to wear it.
And I think that that’s a very important thing to remember for women.”
As she and the GIA movement continue to build a global network of Muslim consumers, they are also helping women find fulfillment in their faith.
“People that are Muslims are going to want to find a better life, they want to feel fulfilled in their life, and they want a more authentic identity,” Hadida said.
But they need more than just a brand to do that.
Hadida’s mission is to help Muslim women succeed in their careers, their families, and their lives.
“Women are the breadwinners in this community,” she added.
“And women are the ones that are really taking over the Muslim family.”
As GIA’s mission continues to grow, Hadida and her family continue to travel to Indonesia and the Middle East to preach the gospel.
