Namita Nayyar:

Santa Cruz, California, United States was where you were born. You began climbing at Pacific Edge at six years old. Later, you joined Zero Gravity and were trained at Berkeley Ironworks. You became a professional climber. Your career took you to the top as a professional rock climber player. We want to hear more about your journey of perseverance, hard work and tenacity.

Natalia Grossman:

From the time I was in Berkeley training to now, I moved from Berkeley, Colorado to Boulder, Colorado. I've always been motivated and I want to do my best in everything I do. My family moved to Boulder when I was 15, so I could climb with the best teams in the country. My parents made many sacrifices but it was worth it. They love Boulder!
