Doing 9 to 5 job is one thing and performing adventurous sports is completely another thing.

Here we are talking about poor tribal girl Poorna Malavath who scaled the highest peak of Mount Everest at an age of 13 years and 11 months, became the youngest girl to have reached the summit of Everest.

Here we are sharing inspiring life journey of the courageous girl as mentioned on Wikipedia.

Poorna was born in a poor family in a village called Pakala in Telangana.

She joined Telangana Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society for her education.

Her talent was spotted by the secretary of the Society Dr R S Praveen Kumar.

She was shortlisted for Operation Everest along with a Dalit boy, Sadhanapalii Anand Kumar.

In preparation for climbing Mount Everest she trekked to mountains of Ladakh and Darjeeling.

She scaled the highest peak of Mount Everest and, aged 13 years and 11 months, became the youngest girl to have reached the summit of Everest.

In one of the interview to Vougue, she said:

I wanted to prove that girls could do anything, that social welfare students could do anything.

While speaking to The Hindu she said:

I cannot even describe how difficult the climb was, but I was fixed on fulfilling the dreams of Secretary Sir.
