Brighton High School students don hijabs to explore literature, religion and identity
by John Klein Wilson
Maybe more than any other, high school can be a time when what you choose to wear has a huge impact on your sense of identity.
As students take their first steps into adulthood, they walk a fine line between fitting in with their peers and developing a unique sense of self.
