Women in Aviation Highlight: Beverly Beesemyer
During World War II, Beverly served at Merced Army Air Field and Las Vegas Army Air Field, towing targets to help train military pilots to use machine guns to attack enemy aircraft.  She flew the PT-13, AT-6, BT-13, and B-26 Marauder.

In March 2016, at “The Greatest Generation Meets The Next Generation: Women in Flight” event in Carlsbad, FlyGirls was happy to help Beverly cross something very important off her bucket list–flying in the AT-6!

Xylene Gonzalez, Risk Management and Emergency Planning
“Growing up, the only person I had pushing me to love math and science was my father. I am absolutely grateful for everything he taught me and helped me achieve BUT I feel that if I could have had a girl, a female, a woman inspiring me and pushing me to pursue careers I thought I couldn’t excel in or weren’t for me, I could have achieved even more! This is why I fully support Dreams Soar. Seeing not only Shaesta behind the yoke of the aircraft but also the amazing women on the board of directors as well as the dream team is so incredibly inspiring. Women can and ARE changing the way the world. I hope that Dreams Soar can inspire and empower you to continue to follow YOUR dreams!”

In addition to exposing youth to these fields directly through Shaesta Waiz’s upcoming global solo flight, as a part of our global outreach events, we are launching a campaign inviting companies and organizations everywhere to show children globally, and to our many online followers, how pursuing STEM/aviation studies are relevant and exciting.We need YOUR help! We would like you to join our campaign by submitting a short video (pre-existing or exclusive to this campaign) showing off your products or services, where you discuss how STEM studies were a necessary part of your industry. We intend to display your amazing video on our upcoming campaign web page to coincide with the launch, and even more excitingly, as a part of Shaesta’s keynote speech at the 18 global outreach events. This would be a great publicity opportunity for your organization.
