Summary: Ibtihaj Muhammad's path to Olympic greatness has been marked with opposition and near-debilitating challenges because of her race, religion, and gender. As the only woman of color and the only religious minority on the U.S. women's saber team, she had to push past stereotypes, misconceptions, and negativity to find her own path to success and Olympic glory. Her reflection provides an unflinching and honest portrayal of how she managed to stay true to herself and still play by the rules.
