I am thrilled to announce that I will be an advisor for Dreams Soar, an initiative featuring Shaesta Waiz, the first civilian female pilot from Afghanistan who will attempt to be the youngest woman to fly solo around the world.
In this pursuit, she seeks to promote STEM and aviation education to encourage women and people of different backgrounds to believe in themselves and allow their dreams to soar.
Along the route, Shaesta will team with inspiring women, and together they’ll host outreach events focused on careers in STEM fields.
Her launch date is scheduled for summer of 2016. To accomplish her goal she will make 31 stops on 5 continents in 18 countries within approximately 90 days.
Stay tuned for more on her journey!
