L'orgoglio di Cristina

Cristina's pride

Salam aleikum,

I'll tell you my story:

I converted in 2008 and started wearing the hijab straight away. When I went out I always felt observed, and in fact it was like that, but the worst were the elderly: they looked me up and down and I felt very embarrassed.

This is because at the beginning I wasn't capable, so I made absurd messes.

I watched tutorials, but halfway through they seemed too difficult and I gave up. The worst thing was my mother's reaction who didn't want to go out with me anymore because everyone was looking at me. It went on like this for 1/2 months then my sister intervened and told her something that made her think


The last part of the sentence made me reflect too, I started to be proud of my religion and my choice. If people want to look, go ahead, I no longer feel embarrassed, in fact I always walk with my head held high.

I have a 6 year old girl who sometimes asks to wear a hijab to look like her mom and this makes me happy!

Every now and then in the park some of my daughter's friends ask her why her mother has her head covered and she simply replies SHE'S MUSLIM. I am proud of my hijab and my religion.
