what are the achievements of Santosh Yadav ? what made her acheive them? Chap reach for the top - santosh yadav.

Dear Student

Santosh was a strong-headed girl. She began to live her life on her own terms since an early age. While other girls of her age around her wore traditional Indian dresses, Santosh preferred shorts. When she turned sixteen, her parents pressurized her to get married, but she threatened her parents that she would never marry if she did not get a proper education. She eventually left home and got herself enrolled in a school in Delhi. When her parents refused to pay for her education, she told them that she would work part time and pay for her education. Her strong determination to get educated forced her parents to compromise and they finally agreed to finance her schooling in Delhi. Her strong will-power and passion for excellence eventually enabled her to become the youngest woman to scale Mt. Everest twice. We get a glimpse of her caring side, when during her expedition to Mt. Everest she saved a fellow climber by sharing her oxygen with him.
