About my mission



I am Joyce Azzam, the first Lebanese woman to have climbed 26 mountains around the world. I'm stepping forward to complete the Seven Summits as the First Lebanese woman, after raising the Lebanese flag on five of the seven summits of the world.

As Conservation Architect, I bring together the world of adventure and architecture. My love for outdoor activities has unleashed a passion to research innovative approaches to protect and conserve cultural heritage sites specifically “Cultural Routes & Landscapes.”

My dream is to complete the Seven Summits by climbing Mt. Vinson & Mt. Everest, then reach the 2 poles and become the second woman in the world to complete the Explorers Grand Slam. Through my mountaineering achievements, I am keen to inspire girls and women to follow their dream and challenge themselves through #YesYouCan
