“It’s not really about having the ability to climb. It’s about this ability to say, ‘I can do it really well.’ “-Sophia Danenberg. Positivity is the key to success! Today we are honoring Sophia Danenberg, the first African American woman to climb to the summit of Mt. Everest!
Growing up in an “indoorsy” household didn’t change the fate of mountain climber, Sophia Danenberg. After college Sophia was introduced to mountain climbing and her mountaineering hobby would develop into a passion. After climbing several smaller mountains, she was encouraged to climb Mt. Everest. Sophia was going to climb Mt. Everest on and unguided tour, not even sure if she would try to make it to the summit.
