For World Record

My Mission

Welcome to my documented journey to becoming the youngest person in history to travel to every sovereign nation. I will be traveling to all 196 countries before my 21st birthday in 2019. I aim to show people that the world is not a scary place, every culture is accessible and there is kindness everywhere in spite of political and societal instabilities. I intend to instill a sense of limitless possibilities within the global community by empowering everyone, especially young women, to pursue their ambitions. This is my life’s work, my passion and the path I have chosen to pursue.

I want to encourage people to push their boundaries and try new things because that is how you become passionate about something.

This accomplishment represents something much greater than myself; I could not do any of this without the exploratory, developmental and transportational contributions made by billions of industrious people that came before me. Traveling vast distances quickly and efficiently is a relatively new ability, for hundreds of years people never knew how much was really out there; until now. The world is becoming a smaller place and I feel overwhelming gratitude to have the opportunity to experience the world in a way no one has before and it is my mission to share it with you.


Visiting every sovereign nation on earth requires a lot of tracking and organization. Guinness World Records requires that I follow a unique set of parameters to achieve the world record.

In each of the countries visit I keep my travel receipts, get signatures from official residents, etc etc etc.
