Preet recently became the first woman of colour to complete a solo expedition in Antarctica. She completed the 700 miles in 40 days pulling all of her kit and equipment and tackling temperatures of -50° with wind chill. When she reached the South Pole she said on her audio blog:
 
“This expedition was always about so much more than me. I want to encourage people to push their boundaries and to believe in themselves, and I want you to be able to do it without being labelled a rebel. 
 
I have been told no on many occasions and told to “just do the normal thing”, but we create our own normal. 
 
You are capable of anything you want. No-matter where you are from or where your start line is, everybody starts somewhere. 
 
I don’t want to just break the glass ceiling, I want to smash it into a million pieces. Who’s with me?”
