New heights for Chemeri Anazia


How hard could a one-credit kinesiology rock-climbing class be? “I thought it’d be super easy, but wrong.”

The class propelled Chimeri Anazia ’22 out of her comfort zone. “We pushed each other and cheered each other on.” She then joined OA climbing trips, even more exhilarating.

The first time she was on the wall, she had thought, “This is kind of scary, but I like it!” And then she found herself going up a granite cliff near the top of Pilot Mountain.

She loved it. She capped off her senior year with one final UNCG Outdoor Adventures trip to Pilot. She’s headed to her doctoral program in physical therapy program with some great adventures – and confidence – under her belt.
