Dubai-Based Mountaineer Manal Rostom Receives her Own "Hijarbie"

Manal Rostom, a name known for challenging societal norms, has devolved as an advocate for women's empowerment. She is a pharmacist, fitness influencer, and a Nike running coach who continually uses her platform to inspire, motivate, and foster positive change.

In an admirable gesture recognizing her contributions to empowering hijab-wearing women worldwide, Dubai-based Egyptian, Manal Rostom, has gotten her own "Hijarbie". This amazing representation helps break down challenges for women, particularly those who choose to wear the hijab.

The creation of her own Hijarbie - a hijab-wearing Barbie designed to represent Rostom's likeness - celebrates her impressive achievements. Her own journey as a hijabi athlete, her mountain-climbing adventures, and her commitment to changing stereotypes about women, especially those who wear a hijab, have made Rostom a role model for many.

Her Hijarbie not only adds to her growing list of achievements but also serves as a powerful symbol of representation for hijab-wearing girls and women around the world.

Manal Rostom's Hijarbie is indeed a small doll with a massive message. It tells a story of empowerment, and it reinforces the idea that every woman, hijabi or not, can reach for the stars, scale the highest mountains, and shape her own future.
