Assam’s daughters continue to make their mark, as evidenced by aerospace engineer Priyanka Rajkakati. She recently accomplished her first journey to Antarctica. 

Priyanka proudly showcased her home Assam from the Southern hemisphere through captivating images from her expedition. 

Priyanka, a 27-year-old Assamese woman, was selected to participate in the fifth edition of “Homeward Bound,” a worldwide program that organizes leadership trips to Antarctica for female scientists.

Priyanka is set to join the Homeward Bound program, where over 80 women scientists specializing in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine) from 18 nations will spend 19 nights in Antarctica. 

This challenging expedition includes navigating the dangerous Drake’s Passage, known for waves reaching heights of up to 60 feet. The team will make landings near the Southern Shetland Islands and the Antarctica Peninsula.

Priyanka’s Antarctica expedition has a connection to Assam that extends beyond her cultural roots. Assam Tourism and the State Government of Assam are sponsoring her extraordinary journey.
