Congrats to Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad who will soon have a Barbie made in her likeness as part of Barbie’s “Shero” line, which already includes iconic women like SELMA filmmaker Ava DuVernay and ballet dancer Misty Copeland! Muhammad’s doll will hit stores in 2018.

Muhammad became the first Muslim American woman to wear a hijab in the Olympics when she competed in the summer 2916 games for the United States. She was also the first female, Muslim American athlete to medal at the Olympics, bringing home the bronze for sabre fencing.
