The fencer, known as the first US athlete to compete in a hijab, met her Barbie replica at the at the Glamour Women of the Year Summit 2017.

It also wears a hijab, just like her, making it the first Barbie to ever wear one (Hijarbie isn't by Mattel).

The doll was released as part of the Sheroes series, which is dedicated to women, who inspire girls and "expand boundaries" of opportunities around the world. Proud that the girls will now be able to play with a Barbie who wears the hijab! "And that's what Mattel wants-they want women who are championing their differences", Graham said.
