She Dares: Sarah Ison

Sarah Ison | Perth, Australia

Hi, I’m Sarah!

After finally finishing my degree midway through 2016, I knew it was about time for me to strike out and see some of the world beyond Perth, Australia. With nothing on my plate for the rest of the year, I left my tiny hometown with no return date, and no set plans for how I would take on this next part of my life. It turned out I didn’t need one, as I travelled in my own wonderfully haphazard way across Europe, experiencing more than I could have ever predicted. I found How Dare She while I was exploring the Balkans, and couldn’t have been more eager to collaborate with a traveler like Jessica and use lessons learned to inspire travellers to come.


Founder of How Dare She, Jessica is on a mission to visit every country in the world, and bring you along with through photos, video and stories. 6 continents and 98 countries in. She has a BA in journalism and Master's in innovation and change, but her real skill is plugging in a USB in 2 or less tries (most of the time). She believes daring isn't about being fearless, but choosing to opt in, in spite of fear. She dares to see, taste, experience and meet the world as she goes.
