There is no shame in my heart to admit that I was already very familiar with Fatima Siad. How you ask? Do I regularly peruse the pages of women fashion magazines? No. I used to watch Tyra Banks‘ America’s Next Top Model, which introduced us to Fatima for the first time. Yes. There was a time and place where America’s Next Top Model was part of my regularly scheduled television viewing programming and I have no shame in admitting that. It allowed me to get a jumpstart on becoming a Fatima Siad fan. So there.
