    schema:description ""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. Growing up in suburban New Jersey, Ibtihaj was often the only African American Muslim student in her class. When she discovered and fell in love with fencing, a sport most popular with affluent young white people, she stood out even more. 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 pursuing her dream. Read on to discover Ibtihaj's inspiring journey from humble beginnings to the international stage. Told in her own words and enhanced with helpful advice and never-before-published photographs, [this book] is an all-American tale of faith, family, hard work, and self-reliance."--Dust jacket."@en ;
