Culture Shock

Culture Shock

by F. Nufla Nizahir, Galle

Fathima studies hard and obtains a university degree. When she attends a job interview, she is told that she can be given the job if she agrees not to wear the head-scarf to work. She says that it is her ethnic identity and she cannot give it up. She does not get the job and sadly wonders what she has done wrong and why people discriminate based on ethnic and religious differences.
