How Gigi Hadid used her colossal platform to give a career boost to a NYC model

American supermodel Gigi Hadid has given a 360 degree turn to the life of an emerging NYC model.

The 26-year-old fashion icon’s followers may be able to recall the supermodel gushing over a woman turning heads on the streets of New York with her chic style, on her Instagram Story.

Model Nanga Awasum, who was featured on her Instagram, was completely unaware about her having caught the attention of Hadid and also getting a shout-out on her Instagram.

“Shoutout to my NYC inspiration of the day: this queen,” wrote Hadid, adding that she “was too [drool emoji] to get a pic of the front, but she was major.”

When she was stopped by people on the street who recognized the 23-year-old Awasum from Hadid’s Story, she turned to her Twitter and posted a full of her outfit, while expressing regret about having her back turned towards Hadid’s camera.

“It’s the way @GiGiHadid would have changed my entire life if I was only facing the right way,” wrote Awasum on Twitter.

Hadid was quick to respond to the aspiring model as she wrote back: “You were facing the right way exactly where you were headed. Sunshine! Sending biiiiig love Nanga!”

“I am not too cool for this. I am losing it. My life completely changed overnight,” Awasum responded.
