Maryam Salam is a Nigerian blogger, based in London, who helps to inspire other women on Muslim beauty, fashion, and modesty with her fashion and lifestyle choices.
The Nigerian blogger who transitioned to modest fashion is now one of the biggest modest Nigerian fashion influencers and right after bagging a degree in Entrepreneurship & International Business last month, she announced her new brainchild Arewa Scarves which doubles as a fashion accessory brand and also a fund-raising platform for the education of the girl child with a portion of every sale going to a charity organization based in Nigeria.
when asked about her journey “I’ve always worked on my faith journey with God and wearing hijab is something I’ve always wished for and prayed about. I believe dressing modestly is one of many steps to get stronger in my faith and closer to God”
“I lost my job due to my choice to wear hijab in the workplace. However, this didn’t stop me, things got better. The more I embrace it, the better things get!
