“If I have any advice then I would say it is mind over matter and you should always have the strength within yourself to continue. Make a decision and stick to it and never give up. Life will throw issues, problems, illness and you must find the solution to help you,” she said.
“A huge thank you to the full team including the porters and guides for supporting me journey.”
