Meet Dana Abdulkarim, the first Muslim woman to represent England in any sport. Dana took her childhood passion for sport and turned it into a hugely successful run in the England Rounders team as an adult, followed by an unbeaten stint as coach of the England squad. Now working as a teacher, Dana believes that health is Islamic, and that sports can help us make sense of life and encourage us to keep learning.
