Description

Growing up in New Jersey as the only African American Muslim at school, Ibtihaj Muhammad always had to find her own way. When she discovered fencing, a sport traditionally reserved for the wealthy, she had to defy expectations and make a place for herself in a sport she grew to love. 

From winning state championships to three-time All-America selections at Duke University, Ibtihaj was poised for success, but the fencing community wasn't ready to welcome her with open arms just yet. As the only woman of color and the only religious minority on Team USA's saber fencing squad, Ibtihaj had to chart her own path to success and Olympic glory. 

Proud is a moving coming-of-age story from one of the nation's most influential athletes and illustrates how she rose above it all.

Powerful story

I am very glad to be able to have an insight into Ibtihaj’s personal story in fencing. As a sabre fencer and fencing coach myself, I want to be able to support all of my students however they come into the salle and I feel this gave me a way to better understand her perspective.

I am also 100% in love with her hijab under her mask. Even though I am not Muslim, I have had waist length hair for my 20 years of fencing and am floored that it took me so long to realize that it was perfectly possible for me to wear something under my mask to not have to rip out my hair on that velcro! (20 years!!!) Going forward, I am going of find a similar head and hair covering for myself simply because of the utter practicality of the garment. At the same time I hope that it can help normalize the idea of head coverings, ANY head coverings, for my students in the future by wearing it.

Thank you for all you do for fashion and fencing, Ibtihaj! 🤺

Productivity- Inspiration- Courage- Grace

Ms. Muhammad’s book is not just an asset to those who share her faith, gender, or race in striving throughout life’s obstacles. It’s also for anyone who has been bullied as an adult or child to know that success is not just in your accomplishments but in how you rise above insurmountable odds to achieve your goals.

Enlightening story! Great insight.

I loved the purpose and message (as it needs to be told) of the book but it was very drawn out. The last third is what grabbed me!

Wonderful lessons and story.

I love the storied life of Ibtihaj Muhammad. She is a remarkable young woman. I also appreciate when an author reads their own work, but not all authors are dynamic aloud readers.

Interesting story but lackluster narration

Her personal story is fascinating and it is interesting and at moments depressing to hear about the inner world of fencing. Her narration is so low energy and not engaging that it takes away from the excitement and inspiration of the story.

What an amazing fighter

I never imagined that Ibtihaj had it this tough as a woman and a black in such a sport that looked so elegant to the outsider. Add the hijab on top of it all and you have the story of a young fighter who never gave up. Also, we all need to talk about parents who raise hate filled kids.

Beautiful story

Loved Ibtihaj inspirational story! Thank you for sharing your journey. I’m sorry about all the mean folk especially your own team, what a bunch of haters. You carried yourself with so much dignity through all the trails and tribulations. You are a great role model and still have so much to accomplish. May Allah continue to guide you.

I wanted to love this book!!!

I wanted to recommend this book for our book club as we love books by strong women who are able to overcome obstacles and succeed at the highest levels as Ibtijah has obviously done. What an amazing story about a young woman who had a goal and trained so hard as well as overcame predjudices at every turn. I cheered at each of her victories and felt her pain while training and even cried when her teammates didn't include her in their team dinners. I felt sorry for her when her 1st coach was not fully supportive of her - then she initially thought Ahki was supportive of her --and later not so supportive?? -- I started wondering what in her was "expecting" a certain type of treatment...when my book club would have been completely supportive & accepting of any woman, regardless of race or religion, who worked so hard to succeed in life.
