Amirah Couture Inc. along with other Hijab influencers around the world are collaborating with Huffpost to feature what hijab means to us! If you are tired of the one-dimensional way Hijab-clad women are being portrayed now is the time to share your voice! Help @huffingtonpost illustrate the diversity and vibrancy of Muslim Women who wear the Hijab. #Hijabtome is the freedom to choose my lifestyle in a world that's constantly trying to get you to be someone else. Wearing the Hijab at the age of 8 was a choice based out of love and beauty because I wanted to emulate my single mom who struggled to raise three girls alone. I developed my American Identity before I even understood the religious obligation that came with wearing the Hijab. Hijab to me is beauty, sincerity, struggle,identity, strength, challenge, meaning, purpose, and most importantly my choice! ??: @jayucanada
