Home News Plan Progress Support Me Supporters Team Be an Organ Donor! About Contact Española

Hi! My name is Jenny and I am a digital nomad who wants to summit Everest in 2024.

I want to summit Everest for 3 reasons:

  1. Did you know that hundreds of thousands of people are on organ transplant waitlists worldwide, but the supply of donor organs falls woefully short of meeting the demand? Many people die every year waiting for a suitable donor organ. One donor can save up to eight lives and improve life for up to 75 others. I want to use the challenge of summiting Everest to raise awareness so that more people will consent to be organ donors. Of course, my Heart will accompany me on this adventure, hopefully to the top of the world along with a custom flag promoting organ donation.
  2. I've been a full-time Digital Nomad for more than 3 years now and the more I travel the more I'm convinced there are no coincidences. I got to Namche by chance not knowing it was the path to Everest, but something in my heart felt so right, felt home. Sagarmatha stole my heart while living there for 1 month. This is a calling I am sure I don't want to walk alone. I am inviting you to walk with me and share this dream no matter the outcome is. " When you want to do a short and quick journey, walk alone. When you want to do a long journey, walk with company"
  3. No woman from Costa Rica (where I hail from) has ever successfully summited Everest. I would like to be the first. Also, less than 2 dozen Canadian women (my adopted home) have been to the top of Everest.

I hope you will consider supporting my goal of reaching Everest's summit. You can find more on info on how you can support my effort to climb Everest with Heart here, but even if you don't want to or cannot support me in this challenge, I urge you to sign up to be an organ donor in your respective country. You can find out more about organ donation here.
