I was pretty nervous about it since this was my first ever cover post-headscarf. Gotta commend the Hijabista team though because they work fast and efficient. The second day I wore hijab, a rep from their team already contacted me for a feature, but I declined because I wasn’t ready. Then when the editor herself contacted me recently, I braved myself to do it. Most of the styles were elaborate and I’m so simple in real life, so I was wondering how the outcome would be. When someone instagrammed the magazine and tagged me, I was so excited! Couldn’t wait to get my own copy too.

I loved how the pictures turned out and the setting of the KL skyline as the backdrop.. it was so me! A city lover who can’t imagine herself living away from the hustle and bustle. The write up was nicely written too; in there I revealed what and who made me finally cover up, embracing hijabi fashion and launching my new brand. All in all, I’m pretty happy with the outcome and I’m glad I took the opportunity. Have a read when you can, the issue is out already yay!
