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."
