Silvia Vasquez-Lavado is a humanitarian, mountaineer, explorer, social entrepreneur, and author of the critically acclaimed Memoir "In The Shadow of the Mountain."

In 2016, Silvia became the first Peruvian woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest in Nepal. By 2018, she completed climbing the 7 Summits (known as the tallest mountain on each continent), becoming the first openly gay woman to do so.

Silvia founded Courageous Girls, an organization helping survivors of sexual abuse and trafficking with opportunities to find strength, courage and cultivate their voices.

Silvia is a fierce advocate for LGTBQ+ equality, women's rights, and abuse survivors. Silvia’s achievements made her an Ambassador in Peru and a symbol of women's empowerment worldwide. Silvia is a member of the prestigious Explorers Club, a sought-out public speaker, and a passionate mentor.

Silvia is one of the women to be featured as part of “Gutsy”, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton’s eight-part series, available on Apple TV+
