#Empowered ~ Aanchal Thakur
This week's #Empowered woman goes to the amazing Aanchal Thakur - the amazing 21-year-old which has just won India's first ever international skiing medal!
Aanchal comes from the region of Menali, in northern India, and this week she took home the bronze in the slalom at the Alpine Ejder 3200 Cup, held in Turkey.
When asked what she hope to achieve in her future, she talks about encouraging more women to take up the sport (currently, only 100 out of the 700 members of India's Winter Games Federation are female!), and to mark a turning point for India.
What a wonderful young woman!
