Viridiana Álvarez Chávez has made history. This month, she became the first Latin American (and Mexican) woman to summit K2, the second highest mountain in the world after Mt. Everest (which she conquered last year).
¡Felicidades, Viridiana Álvarez Chávez!

Viridiana joined 30 others who made the trek to the top. The Mexican ambassador to Iran posted a link that tracks her journey. (See it here.)
While there’s not enough information about her training regimen or how she felt about the expedition, she has shared a few images of herself, celebrating her accomplishment.
