Amelia Earhart
"Adventure is worthwhile in itself." - Amelia Earhart Adventure Begins With a Dream Biography Resources Amelia Earhart was from Atchison, Kansas. She was born in 1897, and she died in 1937. Amelia went to six high schools in four years because her father was an alcoholic and couldn't keep a job. She graduated from high school in Chicago in 1916. Amelia was a little girl when she saw her first airplane at the Iowa State Fair. Amelia was an adventurous girl. She rode horses, played basketball, tennis, and came up with scientific experiments.

Amelia wanted to be the first person ever to fly around the world going in the direction of the equator flying East. She was one of 16 women to get her pilot's license. She was the first person to fly alone across the Pacific Ocean. Amelia went to an air show in California. Amelia rode as a passenger in an airplane, and it inspired her so much that she wanted to be a pilot. Amelia Earhart took some flying lessons from Neta Snook, who was a woman pilot. Neta taught Amelia the name of each part of the training plane before Neta would allow Amelia to fly. Neta taught Amelia to fly and how to do stunts in the air. What Would Life Be Without This? One of Amelia's passions was fighting for the equality of women. She encouraged women to try to do things that only men had done.
If Amelia Earhart had not been the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean, or the first person to fly across the Pacific Ocean alone, then women pilots today wouldn't be inspired. Amelia was an influential role model for women by not following what society said women should or should not do. How Does This Affect Me, and How Can I Use It To Change The Future? What IB Characteristics Did This Person Show? Amelia Earhart was a tremendous Risk-Taker, because she was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean and the first person to fly across the Pacific Ocean alone. Amelia was also Open-Minded because she thought of really good scientific experiments that she loved to do when she was young. Amelia also demonstrated the IB characteristic of being Caring because she was a nurse's aid at a hospital in Toronto, Canada. During the time Amelia lived, it was an amazing and dangerous accomplishment to fly across the ocean. In today's world, this is difficult for us to believe because we have missions to space and fast jet planes. Amelia's commitment to the industry of aviation improved aviation and the lives of millions of people. As a result of her courage and her determination to follow her dream, Amelia Earhart scholarships were established in her honor to help women earn money for college. The scholarships are still given today. Amelia Earhart was a positive role model to girls like me. She pursued a dream to do something mostly men did. I would like to become an architect someday. This is a career that typically has more men than women. Most girls don't enjoy building and creating structures the way I do. I can encourage other girls to pursue their dream career, even if society suggests that only men can be successful doing that career.
