Born in Kuwait to Palestinian refugee parents, Mostafa Salameh
planned to become a hotel manager, not a mountain climber. But
after having a vivid dream in 2004 of himself reciting the call to
prayer from the world’s highest peak, Mostafa followed his calling
and became the first Jordanian to climb Mount Everest in 2008. That
same year he was knighted by King Abdullah II of Jordan.
Today, he is one of only 16 people to ever climb the Seven Summits and conquer the ‘Explorers Grand Slam.’ He is an Explorer, Inspirational Speaker, Fundraiser and Author, having published his first book titled ‘Dreams of a Refugee’.
Mostafa joins the show to discuss his journey and his belief that anything is possible.
