With the announcement of her conversion to Islam, the athlete has deleted from social networks all the pictures that were related to her life so far.
Koha has left only a series of four photos showing hijab.
The 22-year-old athlete said: “Dear friends, my followers and everyone else! I have made a big decision in life. I am happy and grateful for it and I think I am doing the right thing. The only thing I ask is respect – if you have nothing good This is a special day for me because I became a Muslim.”
She performed the Shahadah ritual, thus converting to Islam, mbs.news reported. “I believe that a new and beautiful chapter in my life can begin,” added the athlete.
Rebecca Koha asked others not to share public photos showing her hair or other parts of the body – arms, legs, neck.
