At 16-Years-Old, She Is The Youngest Person To Ever Do This

The youngest person ever.

At 14-years-old, Laura Dekker left on a journey to become the youngest person to ever circumnavigate the globe.

Nearly two years later, the documentary on her incredible journey — and the journey itself — are complete. 

Above is a short excerpt from the full-length Maidentrip, which chronicles Dekker's incredible story of will, survival and talent. National Geographic chose to promote this part of her documentary because it emphasizes Dekker's incredible care and appreciation for planet earth.
