Hi! My name is Farwa and I’m currently a senior at Northside College Prep. I created this blog as part of a project for my World Literature class (assignment description linked below) as a space where people can submit stories, rants, or opinions about any kind of racism, bigotry, and/or ignorance they’ve encountered. This is totally informal so you can feel free to submit your writing in any form you want, including poems, dialogue, short letter, or just a short story about what happened. The only thing I ask is that you please refrain from using profanity.
The other part of my project is an event called “Paint the Town Blue” (linked below), where people wear blue on October 15 to show solidarity with all those who have ever been affected by racism, bigotry, and ignorance.

#BeautyOfHijab ♥ ♥ ♥
I am going to keep this picture for when I have children.
When my daughters want to take dance class like everyone else, I’m going to let them. And, when people come back to me and ask me why I would let them do it, because they’ll just have to stop if they chose to wear hijab, I am going to show them this photo.
Ballet is not sexy. It’s poised and graceful, just like I want my daughters (or sons) to be.
They may never dance for a living if they chose hijab, but they can never say they didn’t have the choice to be an amateur ballerina.
