Kiko Matthews
Kiko Matthews is an award-winning entrepreneur, environmental activist and adventurer. In 2009 she was diagnosed with a life threatening pituitary tumour, surviving this rare and life-threatening condition made Kiko decide to spend the rest of her life pursing meaningful experiences and challenging herself, both physical and mentally. Kiko is therefore attempting to join the handful of women who have successfully rowed the 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean, solo and unsupported. Her goal is to cross in 45 days – beating the current record of 56 days. This is considered one of the hardest challenges on earth. Only 6 women have ever crossed the Atlantic solo.
