KUWAIT, Oct 17 (KUNA) -- Kuwaiti explorer Lamees Najim was chosen to take part in expeditions to explore the North and South Poles alongside fellow British explorer Felicity Aston.
The trip, set for next April, will include 12 female explorers from different countries, aiming to share their experiences and cultures, Najim told KUNA on Monday.
The expedition will showcase the strong will of Kuwaiti and Arab women to face challenges and survive in extreme conditions, she noted.
She said that Aston has over 20 years of experience in leading expedition in the poles, adding that the trip participants will undergo a training course in Iceland on skating, facing extreme low temperatures and other natural threats.
The trip will also include explorers from the UK, Slovenia, Sweden, Germany, France, Cyprus, Jordan, Oman, Saudi, Qatar, and the UAE. (end)
