The world is full of amazing children. Sometimes, we just have to take a moment to recognize one. Today, that child is is Ashol-Pan, a 13-year-old Mongolian girl who carries on her culture’s tradition of hunting with a golden eagle. She may just be the only girl on the planet with this very unique skill.
