Asalah

Asalah

One thing Asalah knows for sure is that “women are equal to men and that horses are the best healers.” Asalah is a 13 year old equestrian, artists, public speaker, ’Random Acts of Caring’ club leader, and high school student. Her favourite place to find herself is at the barn and her favourite hobby consequently is being in nature and hanging around horses and animals. Her favourite quality about herself is “very empathetic but it can cause me to get upset very easily.” (which is probably why she became a vegetarian so young.) When I asked Asalah what she thinks the biggest stereotype of a Muslim woman is she responded, “That they always wear hijab… One time someone asked me what religion I am and I responded with "muslim" then they continued to tell me ‘aren't you supposed to be wearing those scarf things on your head?’”
