This is Zahra. She's 19 years old and she's been in Ascend’s program for 2 years. We have seen her self confidence and knowledge in sports and interpersonal skills grow so much! This is her third year and we wanted to make sure she stays on our team and continues improving as an instructor!
Zahra loves rock climbing and mountaineering and reflects her love for activities also outside of Ascend where she like to bike and play guitar.
Her thoughts on why Ascend's work is important:
"Women needs to be empowered to be in a position where they can be the trainers of other women. Not only the men. Women are strong and capable and that should be reflected in the society!" 🤩
