Hijab-Wearing Teen Voted “Best Dressed” at NJ High School

The 2015 class from Clifton High School in Clifton, New Jersey voted classmate Abrar Shahin as their "best dressed" this year. Shahin is Muslim and wears a fabric head covering known as a hijab over her head as a show of modesty. Shahin, 18, said she's always felt that modesty doesn't have to be boring, developing a style she describes as, "simple yet fun." Shahin says her family is extremely proud to see her win the award because their religion means a great deal to them. "I was very happy and proud that she received this award as a young, Muslim woman," said the teen's father, Yousef Shahin.
