“It was always a dream of me to be in the spotlight instead of backstage. The fact that I was a stylist and working with the biggest models and actresses allowed me to learn a lot about the industry and made it easier for me to get into it. I knew every trick and every detail as a model or actress,” she previously told Morocco World News.
The Moroccan model, actress, and blogger, who lives in Los Angeles, told this news to her fans on Instagram.

Abla Sofy moved to Los Angeles when she was 20 to go to fashion school and has been part of the modeling world for the last four years. She rose to fame when she first appeared in RedOne’s music clip, “Boom Boom.”
“As an Arab, I was always worried about all these cultural barriers. When RedOne reached out to me and I saw that, even in the modeling world, we can still work while respect all our values, it made me very happy and excited to do it,” she told MWN.
