What is “How Dare She”?

So you’re probably asking yourself, self, what is How Dare She?

cropped-imgp08502.jpgHow Dare She is a project about daring to dream big, take risks and reach further. With the support for this campaign, I will fund an attempt to travel to every country in the world, which could make me the first female to do it. While going for that goal, you’ll get the chance to personally dare me, and see me take on everyone else’s dares, throughout my journey.

This project has two primary goals:

  1. Dare to be the FIRST! Attempt to be the first American female to travel to every country in the world (UN recognized countries to start). This isn’t about breaking history, it’s about making history.
  2. Dare to join me! I will produce interactive content through video and blogging to show that travel is attainable for everyone. This will specifically be focused on affordability, safety, wellness, traveling as a female, and traveling solo. The content will cover everything from prep (passports and gear) to the full adventure, sharing back thoughts on eat, drink, play, and stay, all over the world. This means, don’t wait until you’re “ready” to travel, don’t line every detail up, don’t wait for a partner and certainly don’t wait until you’re retired.

This is NOT about crowd funding a vacation – it’s about setting a record, and bringing you all with me through the content I produce. This content will be shared back on howdareshe.org, on all of my social channels (YouTube, Insta, Snap, FB) and through the Global Degree YouTube and Discovery Digital Network channels.

I’m looking for support for this project, but not just funding (though it is gladly accepted). If you are interested in supporting in other ways, please think of your skills and how you might best donate them (e.g. graphic design) or non-monetary donations (e.g. gear you don’t use, airline miles you don’t use, etc.).
