Women's Initiative for Self Empowerment (WISE) is all about giving women a platform to speak and be recognized for their work. 

The organization envisions a future where "immigrant women and girls will be honored for their wisdom, leadership and power to create change in their lives."

One of their projects, which was launched in 2014, is the "Hijabis of New York" campaign which aims to "inspire the world, one hijabi at a time."

You will be left inspired, no doubt.
