Try a Hijab Booth
By Rayah Hammad--
On Tuesday, October 15th, 2019 the Muslim Students Associate hosted a “Try a Hijab Booth” at the main campus lobby. Female students from different nationalities, backgrounds, and religions participated to try on modesty.
In a time where Muslim females who wear the hijab are seen as Halloween costumes, MSA’s E-Board had the idea of building a booth for all PCCC female students to better understand many of their classmates' religion.
MSA achieved their goal of spreading unity between different religions, allowing respect, and the feeling of being a Muslim female wearing a hijab in a multi-cultural society.
Sarah Saidi, 20, Psychology major and president of the MSA said the reason behind hosting this event was to spread awareness to PCCC students. “It’s beautiful to see changes. A lot of new students asked us questions and we, as a club want them to know that we are here to answer their questions.”
Sumayah Lebron, 16, English major and vice president of the MSA also had the same intention-wanting to unify students and for students to learn more about other religions and cultures.
