Black Africans must pick up Everest challenge: landmark climber

Share this:

The first black African woman to climb Everest said that people from her continent must seek “amazing” new challenges to prove they can compete with the best.
The 47-year-old South African business executive reached the summit of the 8,848-metre (29,029-foot) mountain last week after three previous bids failed.
Although she had not thought about being the first when she reached the top, she now knows “how big a deal it is” for black African women.
