Mirvette Judeh, a mother of three living in Los Angeles, chose to wear the headscarf, called the hijab, after noticing a rise in Islamophobia in recent years. In this video, she talks about her first scarf, and the meaning it holds.
Here, Mirvette demonstrates her method of putting on the hijab. Mirvette started wearing the hijab on April 3, 2015, in solidarity with other Muslim women. It’s been a struggle, but she hopes to continue wearing it for the rest of her life.
