1) To tackle stereotypes - and this is a big one. To have an open, non-judgemental discussion on what we all think about hijabis / non-hijabis etc etc
2) To ideally highlight that we alllllll struggle, and more often than not, we struggle about the.same.things
3) That there's no such thing as "us is better than them" thingie - that if we all work together, and listen to one another, we can be more compassionate and kind to one another, making this world a much better place!
4) To hopefully find a common ground where we can work together and hopefully form lasting bonds. <3
