I climb to help marginalized women around the globe.
In 2012, I was inspired to go from a California girl, who hated the cold and had never been camping, to a mountaineer, climbing the world’s tallest mountains for organizations that benefit women. My journey began as a personal challenge, but I quickly realized that if I could climb my own Everest, maybe I could inspire others to climb their own mountains. Join me on my journey to empower women and let’s get climbing…
1 WOMAN – CLIMBING THE HIGHEST MOUNTAINS
RAISING AWARENESS & MONEY FOR CHARITIES – EMPOWERING WOMEN
“OUR GOAL FOR THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY SHOULD BE TO CREATE EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR WOMEN WORLDWIDE.”
THE SEVEN SUMMITS
My goal is to raise $1 per foot of elevation that I climb.
I’m climbing the highest mountain on each continent to raise funds for several different causes. When I complete this challenge in May 2021, I will be the first Iranian woman in history to conquer The Seven Summits.
OUR JOURNEY HAS
Compassionate people all around the world are working hard to address many different challenges women and girls face in everyday life. I have personally experienced what it was like to grow up in a country where it was illegal for me, as a woman, to attend a soccer game. This is just one of many reasons why I feel so compelled to advocate for organizations empowering women. You can also make an impact by donating to one or more of the causes listed below.
