AU Style Diaries: Finding style at the thrift store

(11/11/20 4:29pm)

Hi, my name is Tasneem (Tass-neeme), and the first thing you probably notice about me is my hijab. In the third grade, I decided I wanted to wear the hijab. I was nine years old, and the idea of not having to keep up with my hair seemed very appealing to me. I wanted to start wearing the hijab for all the wrong reasons; I didn't really know how to take care of my hair, and I was young and unable to embrace my Black identity, so I chose the hijab as a cop-out.
