Senior bank consultant, masters of HR management student Where did you buy your veil? I got it during a trip to the old city of Sana’a, Yemen, and wrapped it in turban style. What does the veil mean to you? Choice, identity. Some people view veiled women as oppressed and weak, and believe that they need to be liberated. In Toronto, where we value diversity, wearing a veil is not a barrier to achieving my goals.
