Twenty-seven-year-old Nazia Parveen is a champion rock-climber and the first woman from Pakistan's Pashtun tribal region to compete nationally in the sport. She's faced criticism for participating in a nontraditional activity for women, and for competing alongside men, but she says excelling in sports has given her the confidence to stand up to her critics. Nazia wants to share that strength with other women and encourage them to meet their own potential. (Produced by Zaland Yousafzai of RFE/RL's Radio Mashaal and Margot Buff)
