First Police Cadet With Headscarf in Sweden

First police cadet with headscarf in Sweden

A few years ago it became possible to wear a headscarf as part of the police uniform, after some debate.

Donna Eljammal (26) is Sweden's first police cadet with a headscarf, Metro Se reported.
She had wanted to join the police long before she started wearing a hijab.
"Ever since I was little. I want to help others and move instead of just sitting in front of a computer."

According to her, Sweden is a multicultural country and it's important that, within each field, there will be people of different backgrounds, since it increases knowledge and understanding.
Donna Eljammal has had time to get used to the attention.

"I grew up in little PiteƄ and we were among the first immigrant families there. Also when I worked in the prison service I was the first with a headscarf. But there weren't many who made comments about the headscarf when they got to know me as a person."
Eljammal doesn't think taking off headscarf for her work.
She sees the headscarf as part of her and can do everything with the headscarf so she sees no point in taking it off.
