Her goal is to climb The Seven Summits and has dedicated her life to empowering women around the world.Quotes from This Episode"I announced that I'm going to go back to my training for Everest again, but this time, I'm going to raise $1 per foot of any mountain I climb to provide education for these girls.""I was just tired. I was sick. I was coughing. I just wanted to go back home. And I would think of the moment when I saw two lines of girls and they were looking at me like I'm going to fix their life for them. And I would just imagine those girls, and I couldn't quit. I just had to take the next step.""Everything started breaking down. Pieces of ice were falling down the mountain and the noise it made was like a rocket taking off.""The girls are so confident. They're just amazing. I'm in awe of their confidence and the way they are. So I go to them for motivation now, even if it might seem like I'm inspiring them, they're inspiring me all the time."Learn More About Sara SafariWebsite: Sara SafariWebsite: Empowering Nepali GirlsBook: Above The Mountain's ShadowTED Talk: Climb Your EverestHer Mission: The Seven SummitsResources Mentioned in this EpisodeBook: We Are The Leaders We've Been Waiting For by Julie OwenBook: SapiensBook: AttachedBook: Talking to StrangersFilm: EverestFilm: MeruPh.D. in Leadership & Change at Antioch University Quotes Mentioned in this Episode"The hardest person you will ever lead is yourself" - Bill George
