Join us for an evening with Raha Moharrak. A reception and networking hour will take place from 5:30-6:30, follow by a presentation and Q&A from 6:30-7:30.
Raha is a Saudi mountain climber who has summited eight peaks around the globe. A graphic designer by training, Raha first became interested in climbing in 2011, when she decided to summit Mount Kiliminjaro. In 2013 she became the first Saudi woman and youngest Arab woman to climb Mount Everest.
Since then her love of adventure has taken her around the world and she has inspired other young people to pursue their dreams. She is sponsored by Nike, and in 2015 Arabian Business named her the 50th most powerful Arab woman in the world. She is currently working on a book, For All of Us Dreamers, which will be released later this year.
Raha is always looking for more mountains to summit, and is committed to raising the profile of athletics in her home country and around the world.
