Anthea Fernandes

Affectionately called “Mama Bear” on her MTrek last year, Anthea takes delight in simple things. She likes finding new foodie spots, tasting wine, and sitting quietly in nature. Expect her to share random biology facts she retained from her undergraduate degree and to be distracted mid-sentence by animals or anything sparkly. Like Samwise Gamgee, she’ll pack lembas bread to share and supplies for pretty much any situation – just don’t expect her to carry you up a mountain. Though typically the cautious one in a group, Anthea hopes to convince a few trekkers to do something adventurous with her… but nothing too crazy. Maybe skydiving?
