Ted Talks: Ben Saunders``, youngest person to ski to north pole
In this Ted Talks, Ben Saunders, a young British man, decided he wanted to ski to the north pole. All his life he wanted to do such a thing, but never thought he’d actually be the one to do it. As determined as one could get, Ben sets off in the heli to the starting line of the North Pole (Russia). Ben skis through days, with only a small amount of supplies and food, and just a small tent. As the days go by and tough obstacles he has to overcome, he eventually reaches the finish line, (Canada). The lesson he gives to people, is to always push yourself and go to your highest level of potential.
