Ibtihaj Muhammad faced opposition at every level as a Muslim African American female elite athlete in a sport of wealthy, white men, and she struggled to fit in. But the fencing world took notice! She became the first woman in hijab to compete for the US Olympic Team, and earned a bronze team saber medal! Muhammad’s inspiring story, Proud, is told in two formats: an adult or a young reader’s edition. Meet her here!
