She dedicated the completion of this 4 years long journey to the “Spirit of ‘71 and all those who are fighting to protect it,” Korvi said in the Facebook post.In her official Facebook page, Wasfia said she was now eager to set foot on her homeland Bangladesh – after four years of pursuing the seven summits.
