Saray Khumalo reached the top of Mount Everest this morning at 9:00am Nepal-5: 15am South Africa, making her the first black African woman to conquer the mountain.
This wasn’t her first attempt in her summit, her previous attempts were hindered by the weather. She abandoned her 2014 attempt due to an avalanche, her try in 2015 was cut short due to an earthquake which happened in Nepal and in 2017 she reached the mountain’s South Summit.
Her inspiring words to every female out there are: “This is for all the ordinary women, girls and daughters of the African soil who dare to dream.”
Saray is a true testament of determination and perseverance; a true inspiration for all.
We at TSA are really proud of you Saray!
