Araceli Segarra is a TV host, a mountaineer and star of the IMAX film Everest. She is probably best known as the first Spanish woman to stand on the summit of Everest. She has completed more than 30 expeditions around the world. Araceli climbed Amadablam (Himalaya 6.812m) alone.
Araceli uses climbing as a metaphor for life. Her motivational talks focus on how to conquer challenges and rise to the occasion to beat life’s odds and be your best self. Both an experienced media personality and conference presenter Araceli’s presentations are highly enjoyable and backed up with dramatic and awe-inspiring images from her expeditions.
She began her prestigious career as one of the world’s leading female climbers at the tender age of twenty, when she successfully climbed Mount Kenya, the highest peak on the African continent. Just one year later she organised and played a leading role in her first major expedition to the Himalayas. Her real breakthrough came in 1996 when as part of the Catalan Everest North Face Expedition Team Araceli stood on top of the world. Araceli is the spokesperson for several advertising campaigns and has modelled for various publications including ELLE and Marie Claire. Araceli has worked as a producer for numerous documentaries and productions as well as appearing on television and radio.
