    Global Perspectives Guest Speaker
    British explorer Felicity Aston is the first and only woman in the world to ski across Antarctica alone. The 1084-mile, 59-day journey completed in January 2012 also made her the first person in the world to do so without the aid of kites or machines. Named by ‘Outside Magazine’ as a 2012 Adventurer of the Year, she was entered into the Book of Guinness World Records. Elected Fellow of both The Explorers Club in New York and the Royal Geographical Society in London, in 2015 she was awarded an MBE and The Queen’s Polar Medal by HM Queen Elizabeth II for services in Antarctica, making her one of few women ever to receive these prestigious honors.
