Born to a Maldivian mother and Jamaican American father, the 20-year-old stunner has been dabbling in the modelling world for a few years now and has modeled for both international and Maldivian brands.

She has previously been featured in Fader, Refinery 29, GQ magazine as well as a Coca Cola ad, and has modeled from local businesses such as Toddy and Glam Salon.

Sana had worked as a hostess at a restaurant in Manhattan, as she waited for a big break in the fashion industry.

Some of her upcoming gigs include modeling for Adidas and Cadillac.

While this is also the first time a Maldivian has modeled for a leading fashion brand such as Nordstrom, blue-eyed beauty Raudha Athif -or the Maldivian girl with aqua blue eyes- was the first to be featured on the cover of a foreign magazine; Vogue India, October 2016.
