The inspiring and critically acclaimed all-American story of faith, family, hard work, and perseverance by Olympic fencer, activist, New York Times bestselling author, and Time "100 Most Influential People" honoree Ibtihaj Muhammad At the 2016 Olympic Games, Ibtihaj Muhammad smashed barriers as the first American to compete wearing hijab, and she made history as the first Muslim American woman to win a medal. But before she was an Olympian, activist, and entrepreneur, Ibtihaj was a young outsider trying to find her place.

Rivals and teammates often pointed out Ibtihaj's differences, telling her she would never succeed. Yet she powered on, rising above bigotry and other obstacles on the path to pursue her dream.

Proud is a memoir by Ibtihaj Muhammed, and American Muslim. It is a story of how hard work, perseverance, believing in yourself when others don't, and faith can help you achieve your dreams. Not only did Ibtihaj win the bronze medal in team sabre fencing, she became an agent of change in the world. She became a role model for African Americans, Muslims, and females. I found myself having great empathy for the discrimination she faced as a woman, African American and Muslim. So many girls will have connections to this notable woman and they will be empowered by how she endured and overcame such struggles. Ibtijab grew up in New Jersey where she was often the only African American Muslim in her class. She took up fencing at 12 years of age, a sport primarily for wealthy white people, and made it a goal to obtain a scholarship to college. She received a substantial scholarship to Duke and struggled with finding a social network there. She spent a summer abroad in Morocco to gain further experience in her North African studies and to practice her Arabic and then returned to Duke for her senior year. Once she returned to New Jersey, she found difficulty getting a job. She became a substitute teacher while she focused on fencing with a goal to compete in the Olympics.

An inspiring, insightful story about Ibtihaj Muhammad's determination and drive to be a champion fencer and pursue excellence in her sport, and the rest of her life. As the first American women to compete wearing hijab in the Olympics, she has used her platform as a trailblazer to speak out and lift up others. She shares obstacles and discrimination faced along her journey. She is frank about those who mistreated her along the way as well. ( )
