Bella Hadid: “It makes me sad that power is getting taken from a lot of people and they’re not able to make a new life for their families”

Bella and Gigi Hadid have made no secret of their political beliefs.

Back in January, the sisters became very involved in the protest to Donald Trump’s travel ban, and back in April, Bella Hadid opened up about how proud she was of her Muslim faith.

Well today, a brand new interview from the model – who has been taking the fashion week catwalks by storm this month – has come out, and she is just as opinionated as ever!

Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar Arabia in the cover story interview, Bella opened up about how grateful she is that her father was able to come to America and make a new life for himself and his family.

She then, naturally, went on to talk about how upset she is that times have changed, as the country isn’t as open as it once was…

“My dad was a refugee,” she explained to the magazine. “He came from Palestine to America when he was a baby.

“Thankfully, he was able to come, but it was very hard and now it’s probably 100 times harder.

“It makes me sad that power is getting taken from a lot of people and they’re not able to make a new life for their children and their families.

“It’s crazy to me that one person can tell you whether or not you can have a better life.”

The magazine also asked her about the protests that she and older sister Gigi went on – without any security or bodyguards, may we add – back in January. And it sounds to us like she would do it again in a heartbeat…

“I just wanted to stand up for what I felt was right and I really didn’t care if I was with 100,000 other people because, with or without security, I wanted to go and stand for something I believe in,” she continued.

“Nobody was even looking.”

Perhaps our favourite part of the interview was the part where she said that her greatest achievements won’t involve walking the runway or anything fashion or modelling related, but will be about helping people and making a difference…

“Since I was a kid I’ve loved helping people,” she concluded.

“It’s not very giving, being a model, it doesn’t warm your heart. It’s not as rewarding for the soul as most things.”

“If I can’t talk about something that I’m passionate about, why even be here?”

See, we always knew there was a good reason we loved the Hadids.
