Would I like to be this explorer yes I would!
I would like to be this explorer because I would like to travel to Antarctica and make big achievements for me and my home country. I would also like to go Antarctica and see what it looks like in my own eyes. I also think it would be great to discover such a special part in the world that no else have ever seen or been to and to be able to share this with the rest of the world. It would make me very happy to know that I and the rest of the world could learn new things about a beautiful interesting part of the world.
