Ever since Amelia was a child, she
had a love for planes and Amelia was determined to become a pilot. She was
remembered for her flight over the Atlantic Ocean in 1928, and for being the
first person and woman to fly over an ocean. Sadly her journey ended in 1937
when her plane, herself, and pilot Fredrick J. Noonan were nowhere to be found.
People say her plane crashed between New Guinea and Howland Island. Amelia
Earhart was many things such as courageous, inspirational, and she stood up for
woman's rights and she was by far a hero.
Amelia Earhart has many great
heroic characteristics, but out of all of them, she was inspirational. Amelia
was the first woman to fly a plane, and after that accomplishment women
everywhere looked up to her as a hero. After she showed women could fly,
African Americans were inspired to become pilots just like her, and they did in
America to gain more freedom. Also, Amelia was the first woman to go out into
public and demand the opportunity to fly. After she went out into public,
citizens of the United States let her fly over the Atlantic Ocean before anyone
Amelia was courageous due to her
love of flying, love of the world, and her trait of exploring new things. She
was the first woman to be offered the opportunity to fly a plane over the
Atlantic and she accepted, she didn't back down. She went out into public and
demanded that women could fly; she didn't stay at home, and she did something
she wanted to do. Amelia then showed she wasn't afraid to compete against a
man, she showed the world she was just as good as men and even better at
flying. Amelia knew no woman had ever flown a plane and she showed people she
could and she wasn't afraid.
Last but not least Amelia stood up
for women's rights. She did something she wanted to do with her life, which was
to make women just as important as men. She believed that women are equal to
men and that meant they are the same at flying. After her speech about the
equality of men and women, she flew over the Atlantic Ocean. It wasn't a man
who flew over the Atlantic; it was a woman to be the first to fly over an
ocean. Many men doubted she could fly but she showed everybody she could.

In 1937 Amelia was offered to be
the co-pilot of Fredrick J. Noonan to fly around the world, but this journey
doesn't end like her flight over the Atlantic. When Amelia was about to start
her worldwide journey, she was interviewed and said, "I have a feeling that there is just about one more good
flight left in my system and I hope this trip is it. Anyway when I have
finished this job, I mean to give up long distance "stunt" flying." After they
started, they only made one major stop for repairs, because the plane was
damaged that it couldn't even fly out of the United States, and all the rest
were for food and gas. Right about when the plane got to Australia that was the
last time anyone in the world saw the two pilots. Their plane disappeared
between the middle of New Guinea and Howland Island, but after everything
Amelia did before this awful fate she was a hero and always will be.
