Bonita Norris grew up in Wokingham, Berkshire and studied at Royal Holloway University of London and in 2009, achieved a BA Media Arts.
On 17th May 2010, at the age of 23, Bonita became the youngest person in the world to have stood at both the summit of Everest and the Geographic North Pole.  It was an act of physical courage and daring that made headlines, but dramatic details of her successful attempt revealed that it nearly ended in tragedy after she suffered from a fall in the “death zone” on her decent.  Few live to tell the tale of an incapacitating injury in the infamous stretch which starts at about 7,500m above sea level and carries its dark nickname because no one can survive there for more than a few hours.
Having had a taste of the action and keen to test her limits again, in 2012 now 24, she has taken to climbing the Himalayas as her next challenge.
When Bonita is not taking on the biggest summits on earth, she is inspiring people with her journey through after dinner and motivational speaking.
Branching out in a new direction, Bonita will become the face of Red Bull Cliff Diving 2012 presenting the series for Dave from 7 jaw dropping locations as she follows all the action from around the globe.
