Wasfia Nazreen

With a mission to highlight positive stories and strengths of her peoples, Wasfia set out on an independent effort to climb the highest mountains of each continent when her homeland Bangladesh turned forty years in the midst of political, economical and environmental chaos. In a little more than a year, she raised her national flag on the highest mountains of five of the seven continents on earth, setting aside her career, sleeping on friends’ couches, selling off her property and belongings and even taking bank loans to finance the project. Her campaign "Bangladesh on Seven Summits" celebrates women’s strength and progress in Bangladesh over the last four decades.
