It’s not easy to be a ballerina who covers her aurat, but this 20 -year -old girl managed to prove otherwise.
Russian-Australian crossbreed Stephanie Kurlow has been named the world’s First Hijab Ballerina. Her perseverance and determination in the field of ballet dance and covering the aurat inspired many women.
Before that, let’s get to know who the girl behind the name Stephanie Kurlow is.
Stephanie Kurlow is an Australian dancer and ballet dance student. Just like other ballet dancers, Stephanie started learning this dance at the young age of 2 years.
It was then that his talent was unearthed and polished until he was 11 years old. This is because she decided to wear a hijab and most dance studios do not want to accept her as a student.
After her family converted to Islam, Stephanie also followed in her parents’ footsteps at the age of 9.
After no dance studio wanted to accept Stephanie, her mother started opening a dance studio to allow her to continue practising ballet dance.
Not wanting anyone else to have the same experience as her, Stephanie is also ambitious to open a dance studio that allows anyone to dance without hindrance.
In addition to being talented in ballet dance, Stephanie also has an interest in creative industries such as writing and painting. Interestingly, he has taken a 3 -year leave to focus fully on this field.
At the same time, he also joined the Australian children’s band The Wiggles which toured all over Australia.
Being an inspiration to teenagers, Stephanie has been involved with campaigns such as Converse and Lenovo. In the campaign, he has encouraged this group to continue to pursue their ambitions regardless of the challenges and trials faced.
