First Saudi Woman to conquer Everest

Country: Saudi Arabia

Raha Moharrak is the first Saudi woman to climb the highest mountain peaks in each continents, known as the Seven Summits. For as long as she can remember, Raha, always a curious child and dreamt of challenging adventures. Blessed with
parents who never asked her to change they taught her to dream big and live even bigger.

Raha graduated with a bachelor’s in Visual Communications from the American University of Sharjah. However, Raha’s life changed the day she summited Kilimanjaro, challenged herself, her society and her culture. It was there, between the clouds, standing on Africa’s roof that she saw that her spirit could no longer be silenced and that nothing could hold her back from her love of adventure.

Kilimanjaro opened the doors to 8 more summits but her love affair with altitude was insatiable. She set eyes on Everest and the dream that turned her into an accidental role model was born. On May 18th, 2013, a year after seeing the
legendary mountain, Raha made history by being the first Saudi woman to summit Everest.
