In 2015, Wasfia Nazreen, a 2016 National Geographic emerging explorer, became the first Bangladeshi to summit the highest peak on each of the seven continents, a mountaineering feat known as climbing the seven summits. As a girl Nazreen struggled with her society's expectations of how a woman should act and behave, which drove her as a young woman to enter the nonprofit world and work to empower women. Eventually Nazreen conceived of the idea to combine her passion for mountain climbing and her passion for helping women into one mission— summiting the seven summits, symbolic of the everyday struggles Bangladeshi women face in society. Nazreen takes the stage to share the challenges she has faced as a woman in Bangladesh, her passion for mountain climbing, and her efforts to empower women in Bangladesh and around the world.
