“My head’s going this big,” said Aboah. “Being on this cover is the biggest thing that’s happened in my career.”
When Enniful asked her how she defines being black and British, Aboah said: “One hundred per cent empowering and fabulous.
“I love being a mixed-race woman in 2017. I feel part of something big. There’s this understanding that we’re all in it together.”
Aboah also discussed how it feels to speak to a generation of girls.
“There is this newfound love and space for activism within fashion,” she added.
“I never would have dreamt in a million years that I would have young girls coming up to me at Glastonbury or on the streets of LA, New York, London, and telling me how much GurlsTalk or seeing my picture in a magazine means to them, as a woman of colour.”
