In Dushanbe, covering hair is a choice, not a rule, and I enjoy my beautiful hair. Am I crazy? Not at all, at least in this city. More and more young women are showing their hair without fear, although our mothers and grandmothers usually cover.
I am a student of business, accounting and audit at the Tajik State University of Commerce, and look forward to stepping out into the business world very soon. Dushanbe is my home, and it's a quickly changing place.
I am a new Tajik woman. Beauty, intelligence, courage and strong attitude are nothing to be shy about. I can be different than a man and stronger at the same time.
