"Since school, I've had this desire to visit every country in the world, intrigued to learn more about every culture, natural habitat, and religion. In America, we are lucky to have such a vast melting pot of cultures and people from all over the world who make the country what it is today."

"I wanted to learn about where these people came from, more specifically, where I came from, with my ancestors originating from Europe." says curious world traveler.

Producers, who have been recording the trip, are getting a documentary ready on Cassie's journey. It looks like the documentary will inspire people to expand their vision.

"Going to every country was for me a personal quest to learn as much as I could about our world, stepping outside my comfort zone and becoming comfortable in the unknown, while also aiming to leave a legacy behind. All sponsors and funding is obtained by me while I'm on the road, which is not an easy task."

She also collects water samples to test for microplastics for Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation.

'If I'm not meeting with the ministry, giving keynote sessions to university students, collecting samples, obtaining visas, or doing promotion, I travel around the country on my own, but not for long. I try to spend the most time in countries where I'm able to promote my mission to make a difference. On average, I spend two to five days in each country."

Cassie adds that she experienced both highs and lows in her trip and traveling as a solo woman shaped some of her experiences.

Here is Cassie's route map planned with plane and long bus rides.

I've been harassed and in sticky situations, whereas a man in the same situation likely wouldn't have experienced the same. Some like to be believed that they can take advantage of me because I'm a woman, thinking I'm more gullible to cough up more money or talk to them more because they want me to, but I don't tolerate any inequality anymore. If I feel that I'm being harassed or taken advantage of, I say how I feel, then I'm out. Though I haven't yet become the first documented woman to travel to every country in the world, I imagine that the feeling of accomplishment and awe will be overwhelming. I just hope that I'm able to inspire young women (and men) around the world to go after goals and feats that so far, people think can only be done by man.
