Jomana Ismail is an author, endurance sports athlete and a business trainer. She wrote her book 24 Days: Following the Nile on Foot based on a true story. In 2018 she walked 900 km, almost the length of Egypt, on foot. The walk was both a physical and mental challenge that was fueled by the people she met and the insights she gained around acceptance or lack thereof.
Jomana was raised in Cairo, Egypt in a middle class family and currently is a standup paddle athlete having won the national championship and participated in the first ICF World Championships in Qingdao in 2019. Jomana often participates in endurance sports challenges; she has paddled from Minya to Cairo, 250 km, in 5 days and she has hiked the highest and toughest mountains in Egypt. She is currently working as an instructional designer and a business trainer and consultant.
In this live Clubhouse conversation Ethan and Jomana talk about her adventures and learnings around acceptance, challenging expectations she faced as a veiled Muslim woman and the benefits of self development and personal growth through adventure, travel and freedom.
