Nobody was going to tell me I couldn’t do it because I was a woman.

Jerrie Mock

Dreams Soar Guardian and Mentor

Jerrie Mock, the first woman to fly solo around the world, provided a wealth of information for Shaesta and her journey. Before Jerrie’s passing in 2014, she was Shaesta’s mentor and inspiration. Shaesta honored Jerrie by making Columbus, Ohio, Jerrie’s home town, the first stop on her solo global flight. Upon her arrival in Columbus, Shaesta received a warm welcome from Jerrie’s sister, Susan Reid.
