Woman Who Rollerbladed Coast to Coast Completes Nearly 4,000-Mile Journey

Playing 23-Year-Old Completes Trip Across Country on Rollerblades

The young woman who traveled coast to coast on Rollerblades has completed her nearly 4,000-mile journey. 

Yanise Ho, 23, originally from Hong Kong, kicked off her adventure in Miami, documenting the seven-month trip with a makeshift selfie stick. 

At times, she battled severe heat, heavy rains and fierce winds, but nothing could stop her. 

Most impressively, she traveled with no money, relying instead on the kindness of others to give her a place to sleep and eat. 

"Every day I was hosted," she told Inside Edition. "I was fed. I just met so many great families."

She added: "I just always believe people are kind."

InsideEdition.com previously spoke to Ho, who said she started the journey as a way to challenge the idea that girls shouldn’t be doing things on their own because they’re weaker and more likely to become a victim to dangerous situations.

Ultimately, she said she hopes to raise awareness for the nonprofit One Girl Can to fund secondary school scholarships for girls in need in the name of gender equality. The scholarship Ho created was aptly named “The Bladress.”

“The name itself represents female empowerment,” she said. “That one girl can achieve more than what society predicts us to be able to do.”
