The hijab is a unique scarf that Muslim women start wearing from childhood to signify purity and respect for the tradition.

“Just a few days ago I decided to try my luck on one of the most popular reality Tv shows in Ghana. Ghana’s Most Beautiful, I know it’s a good opportunity for anyone who wanted to make an impact in their community to sell themselves and open great doors of sponsorship for them in their future activities…” Zainab narrated.

She believes she has been discriminated against based on her religious affiliation.
