Meet Dang with the festive demeanor and a courageous habit. She choose not to wear hijab which is a veil or headscarf worn by Muslim women. She believes she will come to that in her due time. “Oo, Muslim ako. Hindi nga lang ako nagsusuot ng hijab kasi hindi pa ako handa. Sa Islam kasi obligasyon at responsibilidad naming mga babae na magsuot ng takip sa buhok namin. Inutos iyon ng Diyos. Pero kahit hindi ako nagsusuot ng hijab, hindi naman iba ang tingin sa akin ng mga kapitbahay kong Muslim. Pero darating din tayo dyan, In shaa Allah (if Allah wills it) magsusuot din ako ng hijab araw-araw.”
