(CNN) — British-born Sikh army officer Preet Chandi has become the first woman of color to complete a solo expedition to the South Pole
Chandi, who has spent the past few months skiing solo and unsupported across Antarctica, announced on January 3 that she’d completed the 700 mile trek in 40 days.
“Feeling so many emotions right now,” said Chandi, via her blog.
