A 20-year-old hijab-clad Miss England finalist Sara Iftekhar aims to inspire other women. While speaking to Haroon Shahid from BBC Asian Network, Sara said that she never thought she would even be amongst the top 50 out of 22,000 women.
Haroon also questioned the 20-year-old model on modest fashion and if wearing a hijab is a fad. Sara replied, “Hijab is a beautiful thing. At the end of the day, you get to show what you want the outer community to see. I think if you can get to the stage where I got, with keeping myself modest and staying true to myself, it just goes to show that you don’t need to dress half naked to get attention.”
