See the inspiring Laura Dekker speak — the youngest person to sail solo around the world!

laura_dekkerSW Charter and Wilson High School are excited to host an evening with Laura Dekker on Thursday, October 27th!

Laura Dekker will speak about following her dreams from a very young age to becoming the youngest person to sail solo around the world.  Her journey started as a toddler and led her to complete the two year, 6,000 mile trip, at the age of 16.

In the words of our Director Amanda, our youth need idols, they need to be inspired to follow their dreams, they need hope. Laura Dekker is an example of a young person who our children should know about.

In order to accommodate a larger audience, we are partnering with Wilson High School. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door. We hope you all will make time to attend this very special event!

To learn more Laura has written a book, One Girl One Dream, and here is a link to a trailer of a documentary, Maidentrip chronically her voyage. Also, here is a link to her website.
