Up, up and away! Flying approximately 32,000 miles in five months, 19-year-old Zara Rutherford made a solo trip around the world. She broke the previous 2017 record of 30-year-old Shaesta Waiz. “Boys learn through toys, street names, history classes and movies that they can be scientists, astronauts, CEO’s or presidents,” Rutherford, wrote on her website, “Girls are often encouraged to be beautiful, kind, helpful and sweet. With my flight I want to show young women that they can be bold, ambitious and make their dreams come true.” After flying over 52 countries and 5 continents her next big dream is to become an astronaut.
