This is worth a notice. Inexperienced, even her judogi was improperly fitted, and with her blue belt rank, she faced the insecurities of having her own Saudi nation judging her presence...yet, she did it anyways. Super brave, and she just set herself out there as a role model for female Saudi athletes, and for Saudi women to be able to defend themselves.

Wojdan, you are a worthy warrior to me.
