#STEMsoars TODAY for Leaders TOMORROW

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

22 countries...

30 stops...

5 continents crossed...

over 3,000 young lives changed forever...

through 32 outreach events...

176 flight hours logged....

and 24,816 nautical miles flown...

145-day global flight mission....

Shaesta Waiz, the first civilian female pilot from Afghanistan, embarked on the Dreams Soar: Global Solo Flight for STEM as of May 13, 2017 from Daytona Beach International Airport. Born in a refugee camp in Afghanistan 29 years ago, Waiz fled with her family to the U.S. when she was just a year old and raised in Richmond California. Once of six sisters, she later found aviation, which then turned her life around.

Through the global solo flight, Dreams Soar fulfilled the mission: to inspire the next generation to pursue STEM and aviation education, globally.

Waiz flew a single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza A36, coined 'Dream Catcher,' specially-equipped for the solo global flight journey, a footprint that helped Dreams Soar engage more than 500,000 young women, and men across various media platforms, to pursue education and careers in STEM and aviation. The goal was 15 outreach events and reaching 2,000 children in person. We doubled this goal, facilitating 32 outreach events and engaging with more than 3,000 children globally.

Now, this is our time to IMPACT the very lives touched by the Dreams Soar: Global Flight for STEM, through a scholarship program designed to support children around the world interested in pursuing STEM and aviation education, yet are limited with resources. That's where YOU step in, and join us to make their dreams reality, continue changing lives, be a positive influence on others and give of ourselves so we have a better TOMORROW.

***An anonymous donor, excited we completed our mission successfully to inspire children globally, came forward with a $10,000 challenge gift, so we may launch this 30-day campaign to challenge our fans, followers, friends, family and partners to show our children, we do care!
