The Bold and Adventurous Life of Amelia Earhart
Born in Atchison, Kansas in 1897, Amelia was the daughter of a railroad lawyer and a social worker. Her passion for flying was sparked at the age of 23 when she attended an air show in California. From then on, she was determined to make a name for herself in aviation.
Amelia's first solo flight was in 1921, and she quickly set her sights on breaking records. In 1932, she became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic, and in 1935 she became the first person to fly solo from Hawaii to California.
But Amelia was not content with just breaking records. She was also an advocate for women's rights and worked tirelessly to promote aviation and encourage women to pursue careers in the field.
Sadly, Amelia's life was cut short when her plane disappeared over the Pacific Ocean in 1937 during her attempt to fly around the world. Her legacy, however, lives on as a symbol of courage, determination, and perseverance.
