A hijab-wearing Muslim girl of Palestinian origin has been voted the best dressed student at Clifton High School in New Jersey.

Abrar Shahin's yearbook photo shows her in a black skirt and skinny jeans, with ankle-high boots and a white blazer.

Along with this, she is seen wearing a hijab or headscarf.

There are always cheerleaders who win and popular girls, so I was very surprised it was me, being a hijabi, Shahin said.

Shahin who works at a clothing store in Paramus has been shattering long-held views about Muslims but still remains true to her religious traditions.

The best dressed vote also shows how tolerance and acceptance has increased at the school which boasts a diverse population of students including 52 percent Hispanic, 35 percent white, 8 percent Asian and 5 percent black, according to state records.
