My story starts at a young age Alhamdullillah . I’m not sure if it’s inspirational but it’s my story on why I decided to put on my hijab.

It was the year 1999, on a Friday morning. I woke up at 6:30am like I always did at that time in my life and went straight to the living room to watch Cartoon Network. I stayed watching, while my sisters woke up and got ready for school, while they ate breakfast and while walking out of the house to our neighbours house who was taking us to school that day.

Hurry up Mariam

I realised I was very late and I was still in my pjs and my hair was crazy messy. I went to my room in a hurry wore my school clothes and looked at my self in the mirror. I looked at my hair and it was not looking good. My natural hair was very curly, so if I brushed it I knew it would become buffy. So I got the scarf I use to wear while praying. Tied it around my neck (in the old fashion way) walked outside and decided at that moment.. how exciting it was I didn’t have to worry about my hair anymore.

That’s my story: Alhamdullillah.
