WOW! How Jessica Nabongo Will Become The First Black Woman To Visit Every Country

Share This


With 13 months on the clock, Jessica Nabongo has set herself up for a lofty goal: to visit every country in the world.

“I am not new to travel,” says Nabongo. The Millennial first went abroad when she was six years old, and since then has lived on four continents in five countries. If she succeeds, she'll be the first black woman to do so, as well as the first Ugandan.

Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Nabongo is an American with dual citizenship, as her parents emigrated to the United States from Uganda. “I travel in a very different way versus someone who goes to see every country in 18 months,” says Nabongo. A globetrotter at heart, she is comfortable with the digital nomad life.

“I have a deep and intense knowledge of the world."

The Millennial first decided to visit every country in the world a year ago, while in Bali, Indonesia. Since then, Nabongo has funded her own adventures, using money and miles to travel as far as possible.



But, as she looks to the next year, Nabongo realized that she will need around $133,500 to visit the next 89 countries on her list , if she doesn't get any hotels or flights compensated, or comped, as is the practice for many travel social media influencers. She has decided to take a step back from her full-time job as the founder of Global Jet Black, a boutique travel agency, as it has been exhausting balancing her business with her punishing travel schedule. The company will still be running, but Nabongo is not able to be as involved in the day-to-day operations.
