In March 2018, brave 7-year-old Montannah Kenney from Austin, Texas, forever made her name in history. The girl became the youngest female conqueror of Kilimanjaro. A second-grade student climbed to a height of 5895 meters with her mother during spring break.

Holly Kenny, the girl's mother, is a professional triathlete and personally trained her daughter to climb the highest mountain in Africa.
