This chapter explains the story of Rejwana Malik. A lot of people assume that having been to Feversham College means all the girls are narrow minded or they will not really socialize with other people, but they do mix in with different people. Rejwana's experience, as a young woman born in Britain, is completely different to the experiences of woman in other countries. She was always into sport in school. Specifically, Rejwana has been playing football for as long as she can remember. Dress is always mentioned where Muslim women are concerned. Rejwana does not want people to associate her with 7/7 or 9/11, Osama bin Laden, or Saddam Hussein, but, instead, pictures of the blue mosque, the fragrances of morocco, date palms in Egypt, or the Taj Mahal.
