A Woman’s Journey to the South Pole and North Pole

昨天星期六,因为学院的补课日感到不耐烦。明明就已经是study week。
上课的日子,早已经因为接近考试而渐渐减少。
昨天,是本院的Hari Kokurikulum,也就是课外活动日的意思。
一个学期的课外活动到了这一天,总算闭幕了。
在这个闭幕典礼上,院方很以外的邀请了国家的伟人出席演讲。
哇~一个女人家的成就,真是让人佩服不已。
她是谁?Datin Paduka Dr. Sharifah Mazlina bt Syed Abdul Kadir.
你可能会问为什么她的名字那么长?哈哈
前面是头衔,学位也到了Dr.,过后的是名字,bt过后是父亲的名字。马来人的名字很厉害吧!哈哈!连父亲都能够同时骄傲呢!
院方的这一次举动也让我感到震惊了!真是个很棒的激励演讲!
她诉说着她Pole to Pole Mission的故事。
哇!南极和北极的不同也让她给研究出来了。
 
原来global warming在北极可以很明显的感受出来。
原来北极的冰块地面比南极来得更薄,会因为地面裂开掉入水无法自救而身亡。
原来在南极让人致命的是那凹凸不平的雪积地面,让不晓得什么时候跌入深渊。
原来北极熊是很顽皮的,总是针对海狮。
原来筹备到北极或南极探险需要4-5年的练习。
太多太多的原来。
试想想~那两处那么极端的气候呀!马来西亚可是天天都夏天的呢!!
 
她做了别人做不到的事。
她打破了世界纪录,用最短的时间结束探险。
她以自己为骄傲。嗯~确实有本事骄傲。
网络上轻而易举就能搜索她的成就。
我们虽然做不到像她一样,却还能够做些值得骄傲的事。
这么强大的意志力,究竟要怎么训练啊?
 
贴上她的资料,参考参考:
