The Roof of Africa's Disappearing Glaciers- Watch the Film

In June 2018 I set off with Explorer Tim Jarvis and team to climb and document the sublimating glacier on Africa's Rooftop, Mt. Kilimanjaro.

"Just like a mountain is really big and daunting, I think climate change can seem daunting and a big problem to solve. The reality is if all of us take little steps and make little changes in our lives, we will all make a collective difference." - Georgina Miranda.

The question is, what else are we prepared to lose? There is no Planet B.

Changing Narratives-On She Goes Podcast

I had the honor of being on the On She Goes Podcast in November. On She Goes is a digital travel platform that helps women of color travel more confidently, more adventurously, and more often.

We had a dynamic conversation on how a Latina girl from LA somehow found herself climbing the world's highest peaks, starting from zero when not being able to run a mile, using my voice for activism, and the diversity that is still needed in the adventure space.

Our Greatest Adventure

What is our greatest adventure? We are living it, right now, today, as we speak...it's called life.

My relationship with the word "adventure" has changed over the years. It's no longer just the act of being on an actual adventure, but a way of life. Adventure is of mind, body, and spirit elevated and expanded to new potentials within ourselves.

When the Impossible Becomes Possible: Summiting Mt. Everest

It was indeed the hardest physical challenge I have ever endured. My heart is full with gratitude for being able to experience beauty and wonder in such a pure form. The top of the world was even more spectacular than I could have ever imagined! A cause gave me inspiration and fueled my determination to go for a second attempt of this formidable peak.

What Will You Climb For?

We made it on the Huff Post! Check out the full article.

Most of us remember the moment we realized that we care about something bigger than ourselves. Georgina Miranda's came late one night in late 2007 as she flipped through Glamour Magazine looking for haircut ideas and instead found a different kind of inspiration: an article by Eve Ensler about rape in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). It was the type of article that "woke you up and wouldn't let you go to sleep," so Miranda stayed up all night researching.

My speech to 500 young women at Immaculate Heart High School was a success!

I had the pleasure of being invited to be the key note speaker at my high school alma mater, Immaculate Heart High School in Hollywood, CA to share some insights on life, career, and vision and of course share more on Everest and my efforts for women in Congo. As I kicked of my “You Can Be Whatever You Want To Be” talk, I looked around the room and I thought what a fortunate group of ladies we are!

Everest: Summit, at What Cost?

I lay there for what felt like ages, debating what to do. I saw a stream of headlamps coming up the slope behind me. One by one, 15 or so climbers passed me; only one asked me if I was ok. I felt so alone, doubting that anyone would -- or could -- compromise their summit bid to help me if I really needed it. I knew that if I fainted again past the Balcony, I could fall off the exposed ridge and not only jeopardize my life, but other climbers as well. I asked myself if I was willing to possibly die that day for the sake of reaching the top, and to be a huge step closer to conquering all seven summits. The answer came immediately: no.

Recent Attacks on Women in the Congo...Aid is Needed

I write to you today with heavy heart thinking about the recent tragedy that has occurred in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. In case you are unaware, reports show that rebels in eastern Congo gang-raped nearly 200 women and some young boys during a four-day period between July 30 and August 3 (young boys are said to be babies aged one month, six months, a year and 18 months). International Medical Corps responded as soon as they could...please see articles below. Details of this massive attack are unimaginable and heartbreaking. Who would think that in 2010 women and children would be victimized in such a horrific manner. It is unacceptable and awareness must be raised!

Hike 2 Empower Event a Success!

On September 27th a hundred hikers joined me in hiking 5k at Paramount Ranch in Los Angeles for the women in the Congo and Uganda at our 1st Annual Hike 2 Empower Event!

The energy and enthusiasm to make a difference in the lives of these women and children was amazing amongst our participants. I can't tell you how great it felt to get the community involved, see everyone enjoying the outdoors, and making an impact in the lives of others all at the same time! Our motto for this event: Empower yourself by empowering others!

7 Summits Starts Now

In late 2007, I began to pursue a life long dream of climbing the world’s Seven Summits, while raising funds and awareness for the women of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Uganda. To date only 26 women have succeeded in this challenge, and I hope to become on of them. The Climb Take Action campaign is a grassroots initiative created to help women in Congo and Uganda get the necessary support in order for them to empower themselves. It will encourage others to participate in their own climb or challenge in order to raise funds and awareness for the cause as well.
