We're dedicated to sharing with you the lovely ladies that make up the Mode-sty community. You may remember learning all about Ciera in our last blog post, and now there's someone else we'd like to introduce you to.
Meet Samina, a social studies teacher and mama from Southern California. Here she is in our Empress Maxi Dress. Check out the questions we asked her and then scroll through to see her answers.
1. What does modesty mean to you?
2. What's something you're passionate about?
3.The media focuses on calamity and strife all over the world, what gives you hope about the future?
1. Modesty means a way in which I carry myself. It is being an empowered female because modesty involves drawing more attention to my intellect and what I have to say, instead of to my looks, wealth, or social standing. If I wear proper clothing and cover myself well--so as not to draw attention to those other things and still dress neatly and appropriately--I think I am being modest. There is no problem with adding an element of flare or style with modesty. This is just a way of self-expression, which is also important for an empowered female to have
2. The two most important things I am passionate about are faith and motherhood. Through some difficult times in my life, both have given me a strong sense of purpose. If I was not focused through these two things, I do not know where I would be.
3.I truly believe that individuals can be good if taught properly. What gives me hope is the idea of educating individuals about what is right and wrong, how they should treat each other, and what is truly important in life. As a social studies teacher I am a huge advocate of civic education. I try to indirectly teach my students and my own children how to be a good person. If we have a generation that instills these values properly in their children, then it can only give a sense of hope in the midst of all of the calamity and strife.
