America 2.0

Jannah, 19, student at Hunter Community College: “I did wear a hijab a long time ago when I was little, but people would tell me to take it off because I was too young (pre-puberty) Now I’ve just have gotten used to not wearing it. But, I still try to dress as modest as I can. Modest means not showing too much skin, no cleavage, not too tight… if it’s hot though, it’s a different story. I’ll wear a tank top but it would show too much. I won’t wear very short shorts… In my house, of course, I wear whatever I want.”
