Across Antarctica on Foot: Talk and Q&A with Zanna Baker
Ice Maiden was an expedition in which a team of 6 women became the first all-female team to cross Antarctica using muscle power alone. The expedition completed 1704km over 61-days in January 2018. Zanna Baker was one of the 6 women to take part in this record-setting expedition. They were the first team to cross Antarctica without prior polar experience.
Never having been the fittest or the fastest in life, Zanna's talk will shine a light on how we all have the potential to do something extraordinary.
