The Ushuaia has arrived in Antarctica with a group of exceptional Homeward Bound women who are reflecting on the unique journey that has brought them to this point.
On board, 88 women represent 18 different countries, hailing from diverse STEMM backgrounds. The paths that led them here may vary – some have dedicated four or more years to reach this moment, while others have spent 18 months in preparation. For all of them, it marks the beginning of an adventure filled with so many possibilities for their collaboration towards a sustainable future.
They woke this morning with the awe-inspiring sight of icebergs and made ready for their first landing. Cold winds contrasted with the sun’s bright rays, providing a warm glow. This was the day they introduced themselves to Antarctica.
