Mount Everest

Yes… dreams do come true. My secret dream of climbing Everest came true two years after I first promised myself that I would pursue it. Everything changed on June 17, 2017, when I made the decision to reach the summit after meeting the first Omani man to do it, the late Khalid Al Siaby. May Allah bless his soul. His story inspired me and changed my perspective on life. 
I was so determined in my decision and myself. I was convinced that my commitment to training and learning as much as I could would reap its benefits. Was I a dreamer or a climber? It didn't matter. What mattered was what I had to accomplish, where I had to be, and how to get Nadhira to where she wanted to be. Two years of relentless preparation under Khalid's supervision. It was a dream I hid from everyone so no one would ruin my spirit or change how I viewed it in my heart and head. It was a beautiful secret that I kept for myself alone to announce when the time was right. 
On May 23, 2019, I became the first Omani woman to reach the highest mountaintop in the world. Thanks to a friend who was always there in spirit and inspiration but physically absent after his passing. It was also thanks to those who helped me and stood by me whether they knew it or not. Believe in yourself and your potential and show others and yourself that you can accomplish anything — Talk less about wanting or trying to make your dreams a reality and begin executing them.
