Kamya, who has not even hit her teens, plans to scale the highest peaks in every continent and ski to both the poles, a feat even able-bodied adults would quail at. So far, she has scaled the highest peaks in Africa, Europe, and Australia. Currently, she is preparing to take on Mount Aconcagua (6,962m), the highest peak of South America.
