Bangladesh’s most famous female globetrotter Najmun Nahar accomplished yet another travelling feat after conquering her 150th country and carrying the national flag there on Wednesday.

Sao Tome and Principe is the 150th country visited by the seasoned adventurer, who moved there from Luanda, Angola.

Sharing her joy over this incredible achievement on her verified Facebook profile, she wrote: “Dear Bangladesh, I am on the way to visit my 150th country, and within a few hours I am going to touch this milestone through travelling the world with my red-and-green flag.”

“What makes the matter even more special is that the achievement has been made at a time when we are celebrating 50 years of our independence. I have flown the flag of our 170 million people in 150 countries over the last 21 years, and it brings tears of joy to my eyes,” she added.

Thanking her countrymen and admirers for their constant and overwhelming support, she wrote: “This achievement belongs to Bangladeshi people all over the world, and I can certainly say that today, my dream has come true. After 21 years of hard work and pursuit, today I am touching this milestone, proudly bearing the flag of Bangladesh in 150 countries.”

Currently visiting Africa, Najmun Nahar started her latest journey on August 8, and has so far visited Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Sudan, Namibia, and Angola.

A proud recipient of the Miss Earth Queen Award and Youth Conference Globe Award at the Fobana Summit, Nassau Coliseum in 2019, Najmun has established herself as the most-travelled Bangladeshi woman since 2000.

She has also received the Atish Dipankar Gold Medal Award, the Red Crescent Motivational Award and the Zonta International Club Award, in the category of outstanding contribution to women empowerment.
