Arunima Sinha - Motivational Speaker Profile
Arunima Sinha Padma Shri Awardee , is the First female amputee to climb Mt Everest.
Arunima, who is from Ambedkar Nagar in Uttar Pradesh lost one of her legs in a horrific incident, when she was thrown off the moving Padmawati Express train for resisting a chain-snatching attempt by hooligans in 2011.
It was after this incident, when she was recovering, that Arunima decided to become a mountaineer and scale the highest peaks in the world.
Arunima Sinha, who became the world's first female amputee to climb Mount Everest in 2013, has added another impressive record to her resume.
The 30 year old has now become the first female amputee to climb Mount Vinson, the highest peak of Antarctica.
Arunima displayed immense self-belief and determination and refused to give up. She got in touch with Bachendri Pal, the first Indian woman to climb Mount Everest in 1984 to train under her after making up her mind to be a mountaineer.
And since then she hasn't had to look back. Despite being an amputee, Arunima fueled her desire to conquer the highest peaks in the world with hard work and steady focus, turning into a hugely inspirational figure.
Apart from Everest, Arunima has also scaled Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, Elbrus in Europe, Kosciuszko in Australia, Aconcagua in Argentina and Carstensz Pyramid (Puncak Jaya) in Indonesia before this.
In 2015 Arunima was conferred the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian honour in India. In the same year she also received the Tenzing Norgay National adventure award.
