A 9-year-old girl tells Ian Payne why she's chosen to wear the hijab since the age of 5.

Yasmin said that she is the only girl in her year group who wears the religious garment, and insisted it was her choice.

She told Ian Payne that when she was 5-years-old, she "tried on a hijab and liked it."

"I've worn it ever since," she said.

Her dad, Yousef, said that he has "never ever forced her" to wear the hijab, but instead "explained what Allah said in the Quran".

"I'm very proud of her," he said.

"Everything is about learning."
