Kick-boxing career & head covering mandate
A former kickboxing champ in Iran, Nasim is now a force in the global climbing community, considered one of the top five route developers on the planet, all the while continuing to campaign for human rights. Her steadfast determination drives her to be a top athlete and to rebel against injustice. In 2005, because of the strict head covering mandate for competition abroad, Nasim gave up martial arts with a heavy heart. But she turned that loss into an opportunity, and rock climbing became her new passion—a sport that takes place in remote mountain regions, unobserved and hijab-free.
I always try to bring everyone along on my path to freedom.
