Hailing from Glasgow, 32-year-old Muslim woman Farah Jamil has made her mark in the boxing world. She’s not just a champion in the ring; Farah has claimed three esteemed titles across various weight classes and is preparing to fight for the Three Nations title representing Team Scotland later this month.
Farah’s triumphs in boxing are meaningful, as she is Scotland’s first Muslim woman amateur boxing champion. Her objective is to shatter the barriers and tackle the challenges often confronted by women in sports, known colloquially as the “glass ceiling.”
Her journey in boxing began roughly a decade ago when she uncovered her knack for the sport. Farah recently scored her third national title, the Scottish Elite Golden Gloves Light-Welterweight Championship, by unanimously defeating Shannon Lawson from Barrhead, East Renfrewshire.
Farah’s residence in Pollokshields comes with a large backyard, which is perfect for a big family and provides options for enhancements like a summerhouse.
Currently, she is getting ready for what could be her most significant hurdle yet, as she represents Scotland on the global stage.
