Students take hijab challenge
by Esra Hashem
Students, faculty and even Mary Castro, wife of Fresno State President Joseph Castro, wore headscarves for a day last week in an attempt to walk in the shoes of a Muslim-American woman.
More than 70 people participated in the Muslim Student Association's "Hijab Challenge," a number that club president Amanee Robinson said astounded her.
"We expected 20 people to volunteer, maximum," she said. "The fact that we had more than 70 sign up and all the positive feedback… it's heartwarming, and it brings a huge smile to my face whenever I think about it."
