What did we discuss? How to persevere through life’s most challenging moments. Ibtihaj talked about her evolution as an athlete - why she picked the sport of fencing and what it was like competing and medalling at the 2016 Rio Olympics. We discussed the physical, mental and emotional adversity she’s had to overcome as a Black and Muslim and female athlete, and Ibtihaj talked about how her faith and her support network helped her through it all.
