Most kids graduate from college and want a new car or laptop but one 18 year old set her sights a little higher. Samantha Larson's wish was to make it to the top of the world and this week she reached incredible heights.
Samantha's now the youngest american woman to ever climb Mount Everest. She's spent her whole life climbing with her dad but this was her real dream.
