Five years ago, she had not even climbed to the top of a popular hill in Johannesburg. But on 1 April Mandy Ramsden will be starting her climb up Mount Everest.
A successful climb will possibly make her the only woman from Africa to have reached the highest point on each continent.
Mandy is a 40 year old single mother of four who is part of Standard Bank Group’s property investment team in Johannesburg.
Her childhood dream of climbing Kilimanjaro became a reality in 2006. This also set off on a journey that would take her around the world and eventually the goal reach the highest point of each continent.
We’re behind you Mandy and will be following your progress.
