Dedicated to change

Sport is powerful. Sport is magnetic. And sport brings people together. Ibtihaj Muhammad has felt the power of sport in her career, perhaps peaking at the 2016 Olympic Games, representing the United States on the highest level and winning the eyes, ears and admiration of her country.

Her journey didn't start there, however. Muhammad remembers always looking "different" on teams and at competitions. She fought obstacles from a young age attributed to race and religion.

She found that ultimately sport is about how good you can be and not about appearance or dress. Muhammad is devoted to leading by example,  unapologetic in challenging misconceptions and demanding equality.

She hopes to one day leave a legacy greater than sport.
