I have a job interview tomorrow and I cover my hair. I love tichels – I am not orthodox but Tznuit is beautiful to me.
In my current role, I started without hair coverings and then one day I said f it and embraced it. No one batted an eye. I would love to be able to go into a job fully embracing the beauty of my modesty but I’m absolutely terrified of judgement. 1) it’s an NGO, very liberal which I normally love but also can be a problem right now. They haven’t spoken up on Israel or Palestine and their focus has been on their mission (environmental) 2) hair covering is misunderstood and I don’t want them to think I’m just lazy and not doing my hair
I’m okay with not covering my hair if I need to. I don’t think I’ll be struck by lightening or that I’m dishonoring my husband if a man sees my hair. It’s just something I enjoy.
