A massive billboard has been put up in Times Square in New York and it is mesmerizing.
The billboard has the hashtag #IAMSaudi on it and features a number of Saudis who have accomplished great things
Raha Moharrack, the youngest Arab and the first Saudi woman to conquer Mount Everest, saw the billboard first hand in New York. And her reaction is nothing short of moving.

At some point in time, something I never imagined happened. There was a billboard of me in Times Square along with the hashtag #IAmSaudi. I can hardly believe that I was born in the sand yet managed to touch the sky, I looked up at my name and face representing Saudi Arabia in such a massive way that it’s no longer just for me, it’s for every single little girl, every rebel, every person born outside the box they were expected to fit in. It’s proof that with enough passion, conviction, hardwork and perseverance, all the corny things that people say, you can achieve anything. For the next generation, my accomplishments mark a beginning, and they will go higher and farther than I can possibly imagine. #saudiarabia #saudiwomen #timessquare #sevensummits #athlete #انا_سعودي
