She was born in Egypt and raised in New Jersey. Gadalla was encouraged by her parents and two older brothers to stay active since she was a little girl.

Gadalla’s insoiration is Ibtihaj Muhammad, the first hijab-wearing American athlete to compete in the Olympic Games. Mattel recently released a doll inspired by Ibtihaj, which marks the first time Barbie has ever worn a hijab.

 

Gadalla feels that the community needs more female gynecologists to educate young women on the female body without feeling any shame, which is why, along with her passion for sports she will continue her education.

She even got featured in Vogue recently:

You go, girl!
