A deep look at the personal and professional challenges of wearing the hijab while living in the Western world, Modest in the West uncovers the spiritual journey of a girl born a Muslim who grew up not abiding by Islamic practices. While working for one of the largest companies in the United States and most influential in the world, Hadiatou Wann learns to fully embrace her Islamic identity, but could that make her a victim of Islamophobia or help her forge a relationship with non-Muslim co-workers grounded on mutual respect? Islam being the fastest growing religion, non-Muslims and Muslims are bound to come into contact. But can they see eye-to-eye? Here in these pages is a rare look behind the hijab and the woman wearing it.
