Maidentrip, A Documentary About Laura Dekker, Youngest Person to Sail Solo Around the World

We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty

At sixteen, Laura Dekker became the youngest person to ever singlehandedly circumnavigate the globe by boat. Jillian Schlesinger‘s documentary was made in necessary collaboration with Dekker, as she sailed with no following boat or companion. The only person around to take camera footage was, well, Dekker.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
