As a hijabi, I’ve heard numerous questions from people about my choice to wear a headscarf. Some are curious, some are judgmental, and others are just plain rude. But the truth is, wearing my hijab is a personal choice and a form of self-expression that I am proud of.

Self-Expression Through Hijab

Many people assume that wearing hijab is a sign of oppression and that Muslim women are forced to cover up. But in reality, hijab is a choice that is made by each individual woman. For me, wearing hijab is a way to express my faith and my identity as a Muslim woman. It’s a way to show the world that I am proud of who I am and where I come from. Some people might think that wearing hijab is restrictive and limiting, but I see it as a way to be creative and fashionable in my own way. There are so many styles and colors of hijab out there, and I love experimenting with different looks. It’s a way to express my personality and my sense of style while still adhering to my religious beliefs.

Challenging Stereotypes

Another reason why I am proud of my hijab is because it challenges stereotypes and misconceptions about Muslim women. In a world where there is so much misinformation about Islam and Muslims, wearing hijab is a way to educate people and break down barriers. When people see me wearing my hijab, they might be surprised to find out that I’m a university student, a writer, and a community volunteer. They might be surprised to learn that I love to travel, try new foods, and watch Netflix. Wearing hijab doesn’t define me or limit me in any way – it’s just one aspect of my identity.


Choosing to wear hijab is a personal decision that is made by each individual woman. For me, it’s a way to express my faith, my identity, and my sense of style. It’s a way to challenge stereotypes and break down barriers. And most importantly, it’s a way to be proud of who I am and where I come from.
