Wasfia Nazreen is the only woman to hold the simultaneous titles of National Geographic Explorer & Adventurer. Although she is known for being the first Bangladeshi and Bengali in the world to climb the Seven Summits or, the highest mountains of every continent, her passion has always been driven by causes close to her heart.

She has won numerous national and global awards for her activism and commitment to empowering women through the field of adventure. She was named by Outside magazine as one of 40 women in the last 40 years who have advanced and challenged the outdoor world through their leadership, innovation, and athletic feats, and by Men's Journal as one of the 25 most adventurous women of the past 25 years. She is the founder of Osel Foundation, which empowers marginalized girls from Bangladesh through the outdoors.

 

Every moment
is a new journey,
a new lesson.

"Reaching the summits physically reminds us of the equal importance of reaching the moral summit, which will then bring about happiness and peace to individuals, families, societies, and through these to nations and the world. It is wonderful that Wasfia has successfully climbed Mount Everest, which goes to show that all of us, both men and women, are equal and have the same potential."

- HH the 14th Dalai Lama, 1989 Noble Peace Laureate & leader of the Tibetan people.

You can never
conquer a mountain, 
you only surrender.
