Meet Zeina Atamish: a chemical engineer, holder of an international MBA, and a hijabi. “A man once broke my heart when he pointed to my hijab and said, ‘you will not get anywhere with this!” Zeina Atamish is a woman with a mission: to normalize the Hijab. Born in Iraq, raised in Jordan, and educated in Istanbul, Zeina wants you to know that her hijab is part of her, but it’s not all of her. Just as you might not want to be solely identified by your race, employment status, or gender, Zeina doesn’t want to be solely identified as “just another hijabi”.
While the Maldives may not be the ideal budget destination, the Maldives now at least offer accommodations at rates that are quite reasonable when compared to the past, ranging from $60-$120 a night at a reasonable but simple guesthouse or hotel. Compare this to the $700-$1500 rates you’ll pay for one night in the coveted water bungalows, and you’ll realize that you just got a steal of a deal.
