    This is a tumultuous, unforgettable tale of perseverance and faith. Raised in a working-class community in New Jersey with five siblings, Ibtihaj sought out sports as a means to fund college and fencing was one of the only sports in which she could participate fully clothed. She was fast, hardworking, and devoted to her faith. But in a sport most popular with privileged whites, Ibtihaj remembers often being out of place. Rivals and teammates often pointed out her differences, one even telling her to "take that tablecloth off your head." Ibithaj knew that was a sign of what was to come.
