Nimdoma Sherpa, at just the age of 17, became the youngest woman ever to climb Mount Everest. This was just the beginning of her amazing feats. She has gone on to scale numerous mountains with her team of Nepalese climbers called the Seven Summit Women.

Never forgetting her roots, Nimdoma has become an ambassador for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), the largest hunger relief organization. As a child growing up in Nepal, Nimdoma received school meals from WFP. She knows firsthand what a difference food and nutrition can make for a hungry child.

Last year after devastating earthquakes struck Nepal, Nimdoma and the Seven Summit Women faced their greatest challenge. The United Nations also called upon Nimdoma for a special mission for Sustainable Development Goal Number 2, Zero Hunger. Read more in the following interview with Nimdoma.
