Hi - I'm Ibtihaj Muhammad.
I'm an Olympic sabre fencer. I represented the United States in the 2016 Olympic games in Rio and won a bronze medal in Team Sabre competition. I was the first Muslim-American woman to wear a hijab while competing for the United States in the Olympics. I am also the first female Muslim-American athlete to earn an Olympic medal.
Other athletic achievements of note: I'm a three time NCAA All-American. I was named the Muslim Sportswoman of the Year in 2012. And I serve on the U.S. Department of State’s Empowering Women and Girls Through Sport Initiative.
Some more information about me: My hobbies include travel and photography. My heroes as a child included Venus and Serena Williams. I was inspired by their confidence. And in 2014, I launched my own fashion brand, Louella by Ibtihaj Muhammad, which I manage with my siblings.
