In 2010, Ada challenged her students to set a higher goal for themselves, but unexpectedly, her students challenged her in return to climb Mt Everest. Without hesitation she promised them that she would chart her journey with their help and in return, help them in achieving their own goals.
It took Ada 7 years to be the first HK women to reach the top of Everest, 9 years to lead the first Chinese all-Female Team to summit the Peak, and 11 years to set the world record of the fastest ascent of Mt. Everest by a woman in 25 hours and 50 minutes.
The journey to fulfil her promise to the students was much more challenging and required much more commitment than Ada could ever have envisaged. Many challenges were encountered throughout the journey; exhausting training, escalating financial challenges, being badly injured and having to be rescued by helicopter and then sent back to HK by private plane. And finally, Ada had to quit her job in order to deliver on her promise to her students.
“Painful challenges are going to bring out the strongest and best in yourself and ultimately lead you to achieving more than you could ever have believed possible”.
People often try to avoid pain or significant challenges in their life, but Ada is going to be sharing with you that success without pain or failure along the way may not be possible.
As Ada says “Aim high, so you can achieve high”.
