The youngest girl to have reached the summit of Everest, Indian Malavath Poorna scaled the world’s highest mountain in May 2014 at the age of 13 years and 11 months. Of her success, she modestly commented: “I come from a very poor family… Climbing the Everest was certainly more difficult than I thought – but my willpower to prove that a tribal girl can do something kept me going”. She aims to become an Indian Police Service officer and also wants “to climb more mountains around the world”. Surprisingly she has just 50 followers on Twitter.
More like this please Matthew. I’d never heard of her. She just gained another Twitter follower. This girl deserves to be famous unlike idiots like Katie Hopkins and Russell Brand.
A lovely story. I agree: We should hear about more people like her and less from Katie The Troll Hopkins.
Great story Matthew
