Thank you for sharing your personal experiences. It is important to have this dialogue and be involved with other sisters who may have been feeling the same as you. I too, wonder how covering has or will impact negatively on our achievements but I commend you on your strength to write it and inshaAllah it contributes to others in a positive way.
