Raha Moharrak




Raha graduated with a bachelor’s in Visional Communications from the American University of Sharjah before starting her career at a leading advertising agency. However, Raha’s life changed the day she submited Kilimanjaro and 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 and her curiosity as to where her limits were grew fierce. Raha made history by being the first Saudi woman to summit Everest, forever proving we can attempt the impossible and maybe even achieve it no matter where we are from.
