As a hijabi, going into isolation for three months with little physical interaction means the freedom for my hair to breathe. Need to join a virtual meeting? No problem, but my camera will be off. No exceptions!

I’ve gotten a little too lazy with my hijab habits during quarantine, resulting in a lot of “oh no's" and quickly grabbing the closest object to cover my hair. I mean, I could always have a hijab on me at all times, but walking to the closet is too much work. So my laziness has definitely created a lot of funny moments!
