I climb for all women

Between raising two daughters and working as a dishwasher at Whole Foods, the native of Nepal Lhakpa Sherpa just doesn’t have time for training to climb Qomolangma, known in the West as Mount Everest. 36 And she hopes to outdo herself this month again.

Lhakpa is recognized by Guinness World Records and is well known in mountaineering circles. 37 But as a girl growing up in the Sherpa ethnic community, she wasn’t allowed to attend school. Without a formal education, she has taken a job as a dishwasher to give her daughters and now-grown son a chance at a better life in the United States.

38 Sherpa girls were discouraged from climbing. Becoming a climber was harder, especially after the first Nepali woman to reach the summit, Pasang Lhamu Sherpa, died on her way down the mountain in 1993. Lhakpa joined an expedition of five women in 2000 who
convinced the government to give them a permit. 39

Last month, her adopted home town of West Hartford claimed her to be “Queen of Mount Everest. ” Despite being known as “the Queen of Everest”,to many of her co-workers, she’s just Lhakpa, a very humble person. “I don’t need to be famous. 40 There is no difference in climbing a mountain. I climb for all women. I want to keep doing my sport. If I don’t do my sport, I feel tired. I want to push my limits.”

A. However, she served as a porter.

B. Even so, she has done it a record eight times.

C. I want to show that a woman can do men's jobs.

D. Lhakpa was used to overcoming difficult situations.

E. She would have liked to be a doctor or an airplane pilot.

F. She gets up most days at 6 am to walk her two daughters to school.

G She was the first Nepali woman to reach the summit and return alive.
