I didn’t post this to focus on her recognition for doing what she did at such a young age; GK i think you “missed the forest for the trees”.

I wanted to share this because it was inspiring to see someone at such a young age have the courage to follow her dream. It was even more inspiring when she mentioned she didn’t do it for the fame.

From watching her talk it sounded like she did it because it was something she enjoyed AND she wanted to challenge herself to see if she could do it.

She spent 7 months at sea, not seeing land nor another person the entire time.

Beautiful to see what we’re capable of IF only we get out of our own way.

It was also amazing to me how mature she was for her age; must’ve had something to do with her being alone at sea for that long! ;)
