Hijab-wearing TV reporter in US breaks barriers

Washington (Web Desk): A female journalist made history as she became the first full-time TV reporter in the United States of America to wear a hijab.

Tahera Rahman had worked for an American television station ‘WHBF’, a television station in Illinois and Iowa for two years as a producer before applying to be on-air, the international media reported.

The people in her surroundings even some of her mentors told her it was an unlikely dreamas Americans were no way ready to see a hijab-wearing news anchor.

But she decided to fight against this stereotype and proved herself a moderate religious as well as fashionable.  

No doubts, Tahera Rahman will always be remembered in the history.
