PORTLAND, ME - JUNE 04: High school senior, Samira on her way to prom in a limo rented by her brother June 4, 2004 in Portland, Maine. Samira's family allows her to be open with them about dressing in western style clothing. Other girls have to hide and lie about it. Muslim females in the United States straddle two cultures, as they are expected to uphold many of the customs and traditions of Islam in the face of western culture.
