Shaesta Waiz wants to be the youngest woman to ever fly around the world
from Huffington Post Canada
An Afghan pilot hoping to become the youngest woman in history to complete a solo round-the-world flight was preparing to start the Transatlantic leg of her journey. Shaesta Waiz, 29, was born in a refugee camp at the end of the Soviet war in Afghanistan before immigrating with her family to the United States in 1987. There, she discovered a passion for flying and obtained her pilot's license — becoming the youngest certified civilian female pilot from Afghanistan.
