My name is Abby Antal and I am about to embark on a journey of a lifetime.  

I have been selected as a team member, representing Canada, on the International Antarctic Expedition (IAE) which will take place in March 2016. The purpose of this expedition is to engage and inspire the next generation of leaders to work together to build resilient communities through the promotion of recycling, renewable energy and sustainability.  

My life has been firmly rooted in a great love of the outdoors. I was fortunate to grow up in a time where children could spend their days outside and were told to "come home when the street lights come on." My years spent in nature has nurtured my soul and blessed me with countless incredible experiences and opportunities. It is my dream that the children of today, and those of generations to come, are able to enjoy the wonders of the outdoors as I have.

It is this passion for the outdoors that led me to apply for this expedition. To be immersed in the beauty of this magnificent continent, to observe its wildlife and to learn from the team at the 2041 Foundation is a huge privilege. I will be joined by other hand-picked expedition members from around the globe--all of us sharing our own stories to create a universal message of hope and action. I am so honoured to have this opportunity. 

Participating in this expedition is not a vacation, but rather a commitment to bring back my experience in the hopes of inspiring others to help preserve not only Antarctica but all of nature -- our planet.

My goal is to share my story with children and youth in schools within my community and beyond. To inspire them to follow their dreams, to have hope in the future and to know that they can make a difference in the world--big or small. The children and youth of today are our innovators and leaders of tomorrow. If I can help inspire them, then this expedition will have been a success.

Please help this grandmother fulfill her dream to go to the last great wilderness on earth so that she can share her story and inspire others for a positive future.
