Mount Ama Dablam

When we allow ourselves to live various experiences in life, we find that we learn more about ourselves every day. Even the pursuit itself teaches you a lot. To reach my goal of climbing Everest, I first had to experience climbing a Himalayan mountain. After some research, Amadablam caught my eye and intrigued me with its difficulty and danger. I chose it as a stepping stone towards my bigger goal despite the challenge and humble abilities. I thought it would get me used to the environment and strengthen my will and knowledge, but I failed to reach the top by 300 meters due to the altitude sickness I felt there. Being so close and still not being able to reach the top was a huge lesson. 
I now understand the phrase, "Others will learn from your success. Only you learn from your failures". 
In 2020, after a challenging year for everyone, I decided not to give up on my fitness. Whether it was simple home workouts or climbing my house's roof using a rope, I wanted to continue my journey so that I wouldn't be behind whenever life got back to normal. So when the opportunity presented itself to climb Amadablam again, I couldn't pass it up — I was ready for it. I knew spending the winter in a Himalayan mountain would be difficult. Still, after 30 days of intense and strong winds and weather, on January 14, 2021, I became the first Arab woman to climb and reach the top of Amadablam mountain.
