My Hijaab, My Path
It was in Ramadan, after iftar i went to her place so we can go to our aunts wedding. I had been already considering the thought for a few days and so I felt excited about wearing it being not fully aware of the consequences.

Mickle stresses the positive feedback pouring into the station outweighs the negative, and adds the only real pressure at the moment is dealing with the overwhelming media interest in Rahman.
Rahman says she hopes her hard work pays off, not just to move up the television news career ladder, but so those who follow in her footsteps will have similar opportunities in offices across the country. But he had his own set of issues, and somehow we just seemed to help each other.
