TEDxRedmond - Jordan Romero - Climbing Mt. Everest

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations) Though Jordan Romero burst into the national spotlight only recently--after becoming the youngest person ever to climb Mt. Everest--he is, at fourteen, a veritable veteran of mountaineering. Climbing mountains since elementary school as part of his "7 Summits" project--the goal of climbing the tallest summit of each continent. At an age where many of his peers might be playing video games or watching TV for fun, a ten-year-old Jordan climbed Africa's Mt. Kilimanjaro and Australia's Mt. Kosciuszko. His impressive list of mountains climbed--Kilimanjaro, Kosciuszko, Elbrus, Aconcagua, McKinley/Denali, Carstenz, and now, Everest--only goes to show that practice truly does make perfect.
