Omar Samra

Omar Samra is a father, a successful entrepreneur, and the first Egyptian, one of less than 40 people in history, to complete the Explorer’s Grand Slam – an adventurers challenge to reach the north and south pole and climb the Seven Summits.  But when tragedy struck, Samra discovered that the mountains he’d climbed were never meant to be his biggest challenge. The answers to life’s most important question – why are we here – exists not in what we do or achieve, but in the depths of loss, resilience, vulnerability and ultimately learning to let go. We discover that we’re all here for one purpose alone: to heal and to help heal each other. Samra reveals humility, hope, and courage and offers a radical re-frame of what it means to be a man, and in fact, a human.
