“We are thrilled to have Ibtihaj Muhammad as the 2019 Baccalaureate speaker,” said Stanford Senior Class Presidents Tashrima Hossain, Nick Peña, Tony Moller and Aron Tesfai. “Having broken immense barriers to become the first Muslim American Olympian to win a medal in fencing, Muhammad teaches us the power of grit and resilience. She has utilized her platform to empower female athletes, encourage religious tolerance and inspire countless young people. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to hear from such an incredible change-maker during this year’s ceremony.”

Muhammad, who began fencing at age 13, grew up in Maplewood, New Jersey, and attended Duke University. She graduated with a dual major in international relations and African studies, earned All-America honors three times and was a Junior Olympic National Champion.

She launched a clothing company in 2014 and serves as a sports ambassador with the U.S. State Department’s Empowering Women and Girls Through Sport Initiative. She described her experiences in Proud: My Fight for an Unlikely American Dream, her memoir published in 2018.

Stanford’s Baccalaureate service will be from 10 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 15. The following day, Apple CEO Tim Cook will speak at the Commencement ceremony. More details are available at the Commencement Weekend website.
