Hi. I'm Kori Montgomery. I'm eighteen. I'm from Prospect and graduated from Elgin. I'm studying Psychology at Ohio State University at Marion. After graduating from Marion I plan to go to Columbus to get my masters degree in Psychology. I'm a server at Bob Evans in Delaware.
"The men aren't hot" muttered Gelareh Asayesh when she was on the mountain. "Shrouded in Contradiction" was my favorite essay out of the two we had to read. I thought it was wrong that she didn't particularly want to wear the hijab but she was made to. She is required to wear it for Islam because women are not allowed to show their hair to anybody who they can marry. It's forbidden. She, however, wrapped it up off of her neck and she still got in trouble. I learned that it's so important to the women in that society to stay faithful to their beliefs. I come from a society where you do what you want and you can believe in what you want. Nobody is going to make you wear a headdress or make you pray. It's interesting for me to learn about other cultures who really enforce certain acts or attire when I've grown up without any religious background.
