Mattel has unveiled a new Barbie created in honor of Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad.

The one-of-a-kind doll fashioned in her likeness makes her the newest inductee into the Barbie “Shero” series.

According to Mattel, the “Sheroes” program was created to honor women who break boundaries.

Muhammed-who was on Time Magazine’s 2015 list of “100 Most Influential People” also has her own clothing line.
