  •  Physical trauma subsiding  Adding insult to injury  On the hospital bed, frustrated & helpless  What went through your mind?  What did you decide to do?  & Why?
  •  Once you decided to climb the Everest, how did you start?  Did you seek help?  How did you train?  When did you know that you were ready?
  •  So, you have trained well and you are at the base camp  Describe your attempt to climb the Everest
  •  Against so many odds, you have conquered the world’s tallest mountain!  How does it feel and what next?
  •  Your final message to the audience?
