“This week specifically I’m wearing it because my boss is out traveling but if I could wear it on daily basis I would. I feel sorry for all the hijabis that go through discrimination or ignorance saying that evoluted women shouldn’t wear it, or that it is a submissive garment. Now I understand completely why hijabis say Hijab is my crown.”

I’m a Catholic Colombian woman. Here in my country, the Muslim community is quite small but during my chilhood years I was exposed to their culture and religion without thinking much. I consider myself a citizen of the world and my daily goals are related to achieving more knowledge about the world and the people. I’m raising my children in a environment free of judgemental thoughts, without genders, religion, political affiliation or geographic boundaries. I tried a hijab first because I wanted to take a picture for my boyfriend. Before I was checking online tutorials and the history behind it. The very same day I wore the hijab something made complete sense about it. For me, wearing a hijab is a spiritual connection, is a direct way to communicate with my inner self leaving the material things behind. Is me exposed the way I want to be exposed. People look into my eyes when I talk to them and I feel protected. My communication with God is getting better. This week specifically I’m wearing it because my boss is out travelling but if I could wear it on daily basis I would. I feel sorry for all the hijabis that go through discrimination or ignorance saying that evoluted women shouldn’t wear it, or that it is a submissive garment. Now I understand completely why hijabis say Hijab is my crown.
