Mariam Binladen decided to become a marathon swimmer.
A passion she nurtured as a child, 20 years ago, when her mother told her the story of the first Arab who crossed the English Channel. She swims to inspire and empower Arab women to go after their dreams, as well as promote awareness for one of the most important issues of our time, refugees in dire need who are forced everyday to cross boundaries to survive.
This represents not only an athletic challenge, but a symbolic and ardent dream: to give a second chance to her family, and show the world that when a Saudi woman wants, she can.
