Straight arrow to my heart. #bittersweet is right.
Happy World Hijab Day! Every woman has a different reason for wearing hijab (or not). Every woman has a different style of wearing hijab and every woman’s journey to or from hijab looks vastly different. But for me, wearing hijab has been the single most empowering decision I have made for myself. Always feel free to ask questions! May we continue to aim for freedom from society’s expectations ✊🏽
Always speak up. [shout out to @thuraya_z for the photo!]
Imagine if we gave all kids of color the same respect for their humanity, the same compassion and understanding. In the streets, in schools, in all aspects of life. It’s our responsibility to actively work against our biases always, but ESPECIALLY as educators.
You’re not honoring Dr. King without that deep level of analysis as to WHY you have to have a day of service to begin with. Wrestle, learn, educate, and dismantle. ✊🏽
