World Hijab Day 

Yesterday was #worldhijabday and my friend Jamie and I had the oppourtunity to try on a hijab in the student Center of McMaster University.

While I can’t even begin to pretend I know what it’s like to put on a hijab with pride and fear that you’ll spend the day being ridiculed, mocked and harassed- I can consider what I can do in order to make those around me feel safer and valued.

I think this starts when we extend more support, get a little more educated, care a little more, and love a whole lot more than necessary.
