Find out how a British Sikh woman made history

• History was made by British-born Sikh army officer Pretty Chandi by being the first woman of color to complete a solo expedition to the South Pole.

• The completion of the expedition was announced by Ms. Chandi on her blog. She wrote, “I made it to the South Pole where it’s snowing. Feeling so many emotions right now… it feels so surreal to finally be here.”

• It has been said that Ms. Chandi spent two and a half years preparing for her trip to South Pole, and even trained in the French Alps and trekked in Iceland.

• She stated earlier, “Antarctica is the coldest, highest, driest and windiest continent on earth. Nobody lives there permanently. I didn’t know much about the continent when I first started planning and that is what inspired me to go there.”
