When Ibtihaj Muhammad's parents sought a sport that would allow their daughter to fulfill her competitive nature and be fully covered in accordance with her faith, they discovered fencing. Ibtihaj excelled at the sport. Competing as a saber fencer on the U.S. fencing team, she became the first female Muslim-American fencing champion to wear a hijab (a traditional head scarf). As a brilliant athlete, entrepreneur and inspiration to girls who never saw themselves represented, Ibtihaj is not only celebrated for her accolades but for embracing what made her stand out. Ibtihaj is honored as a Barbie™ “Shero,” a woman who has broken boundaries to inspire the next generation of girls. Girls need more role models like Ibtihaj, because imagining they can be anything is just the beginning. Actually seeing that they can makes all the difference. The Ibtihaj Muhammad Barbie® doll is sculpted to her likeness, fully posable and is dressed in her fencing uniform, complete with hijab, sabre and mask. Includes doll, doll stand for display and Certificate of Authenticity.
