There's an emoji for just about every situation and just about every person, except one.
Muslim teen Rayouf Alhumedhi, who lives in Berlin, Germany, was hard-pressed to find an image she could related to.
After some research and help from former New Yorker Time reporter, Jennifer 8. Lee, Alhumedhi and Lee submitted a proposal to the Unicode Consortium, a non-profit corporation that helps develop and promote software standards that apply internationally, reports the New York Times.

In the proposal, Alhumedhi included a history of the hijab and commented on its importance in her culture.
"The hijab symbolizes modesty, privacy and religious identity. Excluding family members, the hijab is worn in the presence of men. Women all across the globe choose to wear the headscarf because of its evident indication of their faith and identity," the proposal states.
The proposal originally requested an emoji for Muslim men who wear a kaffiyeh, but that has since been removed since the matter presents complications.
