Born in Iran, Nasim started climbing at the age of 23. She had always been keen on sport, having competed in the heptathlon, swimming, handball and kick boxing. But when she discovered climbing, something changed. Nasim describes it as having found the “thing that makes her truly happy”. She soon gave up the other sports, but carried on rock climbing, finding a particular joy in traditional climbing and alpinism.
