Meet ASIYA Athlete: Mizaan A.

Mizaan started participating in the sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at the age of six!!   Six years later she continues to love the sport because it keeps her in shape, and she loves to learn new moves!

Mizaan shared that the first time she tried to compete wearing her hijab she was told she could not wear it but shortly after the judges changed their mind.  She proudly wears her hijab as it makes her feel good to represent her religion.

Like many other Muslim girls, Mizaan admires Ibthihaj Muhammad, the Olympic fencer, and hopes to follow in her footsteps.

We wish Mizaan continued success as a BJJ athlete, and welcome you to the ASIYA Athlete family!
